Mr Twin Sister formed in 2008 under the name Twin Sister, quickly garnering critical attention from the dense homemade pop of their early EPs – Vampires with Dreaming Kids in 2008 and Color Your Life in 2010. They have been a quietly influential fixture of independent music ever since. The group released their debut LP In Heaven (2011) via Domino, and in 2012 their song Meet the Frownies was sampled by Kendrick Lamar and Dr Dre on The Recipe. Having left Domino and changed their name to Mr Twin Sister, the group re-emerged in 2014 with the low lit disco and funk of their self-titled Mr Twin Sister. The record appeared on best-of-year lists from Pitchfork, Gorilla vs Bear, TIME, and many others. In 2018 the group released Echo Arms, their most popular track to date, and Salt, their third and most diverse album yet. 2021 saw the release of the group’s fourth full length LP Al Mundo Azul, a vibrant, surreal record that swaps the group’s restrained cool for something wide awake and grinning. Mr Twin Sister has made a habit of swerving the expectations of their devoted following and critical outlets alike, recombining musical styles and dodging easy categorization as a matter of course.
