Have You Heard? Twin Peaks - Walk to the One You Love

Twin Peaks - Walk to the One You Love

All of a sudden these nutcases look like a genuinely exciting proposition.

Enough with the name jokes and the fact that poor Twin Peaks will be even less googleable by the time David Lynch’s series revives in 2017. This Chicago group are ready to be taken seriously. Not that previous LP ‘Wild Onion’ was a write-off, but it was the sound of a reckless bunch of young rock n’ roll’ers diving headfirst into hedonism. Since that record, they’ve sharpened their tools, reconfigured their radar and figured out their place in the world.

‘Walk to the One You Love’ - the lead track from new album ‘Down in Heaven’ - gives hints of a thousand greats who’ve taken the same unhinged path previously. But this isn’t a simple nostalgia trip. There’s a sweet heart (the line “if you abuse the one you love / you’re gonna lose the one you love” sticks out), and 2016’s finest guitar solo to date - backed by cheery, shout-out-loud harmonies. All of a sudden these nutcases look like a genuinely exciting proposition, ready for the long run.
