Sam McTrusty and Ross McNae of Scottish four piece Twin Atlantic were recently down here touring with Soundwave and popped by the AU beer pong tournament backstage in Sydney to engage in a little competitive game.

Festival Review: Soundwave Festival Sydney (Day 2) - Sydney Olympic Park (01.03.15)

Day 2 of Soundwave brought in more Sydney goers compared to Saturday’s festivities. With the lineup being catered to mainly pop punk fans as well as the metalheads too, it was riveting to see what the second day had in store. I liked the idea of spending my weekend at Soundwave; it was like taking a holiday by seeing your favourite bands live.

Live Review: Fall Out Boy + Twin Atlantic + Emily's Army - UNSW Roundhouse, Sydney (24.02.15)

Leaving home for Fall Out Boy headlining Soundwave sidewave, I felt a little nostalgic. Firstly, Fall Out Boy were the soundtrack to my pre-pubescent years - the end of primary school and the beginning of high school. Secondly, the first live band I ever saw, Brand New was touring on Soundwave when I saw them. Little did I know that in the hour it took me to travel to the show at UNSW’s Roundhouse, I’d also travel back in time.

Album Review: Twin Atlantic - Great Divide (2014 LP)

Showcasing a rock and roll side to their style of music, Twin Atlantic are back with their third studio album, Great Divide. It can be acknowledged that the boys have nurtured their songwriting skills and have aimed for a sentimental direction into their songs and with that, they have experimented with both creating slow and fast-paced songs in order to develop a balance in which they are able to find themselves standing out from the alternative rock scene. Some may say that the sound in which the band create is similar to bands such as Biffy Clyro and You Me At Six and knowing this can help their music become more accessible to fans.
