Twin Bandit

from Vancouver, BC

When it comes to the great tradition of folk music, two voices can so often be better than one — at least that’s the approach of Vancouver duo Twin Bandit. Hannah Walker and Jamie Elliott may not literally be twins but the two blend together so harmoniously, in the literal and metaphorical sense, that something as inconsequential like biology wouldn’t be likely to bring them closer together.

Both Walker and Elliott are clearly drawn to straight-up folk music; many of their songs carry a sweet simplicity that is timeless and traditional. But don’t think of Twin Bandit as some kind of throwback — they are definitely a product of current times. The duo’s songs dabble in catchy pop melodies and there’s also a strong Nashville influence, with more than a few dips into pure country instrumentation. On their most recent album Full Circle Walker and Elliott’s voices are the beating heart at the centre of their songs. They sing of love, of loss, of joy and struggle, all without cynicism or unpleasant tension. It’s a refreshing take on modern life, and a counterpoint to the ugliness of the day that we could all use a little more of.
