The Twoks

  • Bluestone Theatre 22 Yaldwyn St W Kyneton, VIC, 3444 Australia (map)
Sure you could compare this to Haim but it’s also got that nod to Tango era Fleetwood Mac with an attention to hook details and pop precision. The Twoks really hitting their straps with this one.

The Twoks are Xani Kolac (electric violin/vocals) and Mark Leahy (drums). The Melbourne-based duo have been making happy violin and drums dance music together for the past three and a bit years. Electric violin and percussion combine to make something that is truly one of a kind. Versatile and energetic live performers, Xani and Mark are as happy performing to a sit-down audience as to a rowdy pub crowd. Their influences are mostly life’s adventures, but musically-speaking, the duo listen to a lot of Sigur Ros, Kate Bush, Phoenix, Leonard Cohen, Martin Hayes/Dennis Cahil and Pat Benatar - anything good, really. 

 

Like a lost track from Cyndi Lauper’s ‘She’s so unusual’ given a DayGlo modern makeover.
