Woohoo! Twin Atlantic are back! Returning with banging new single ‘Novocaine’ today, it’s the first glimpse of their upcoming fourth LP ‘POWER’ that’s due to land on 24th January.
“I wanted to force myself to be more honest and open,” Sam McTrusty explains of their first track. “The song tells the story of the most intimate connection I’ve ever felt with someone else - when I first met my wife. That feeling of obsession taking over every thought and reason was almost like an addiction at the time. It embarasses us in some ways that we fell victim to such a cliched movie script love story, but equally amazes us that it ever happened.”
Their first record since 2016’s ‘GLA’, they describe their new album as all about perseverance. “The album is inspired by colours, moods, memories,” Sam says. “We just got into a room and started creating. The studio as its own instrument reached a new level – we created nothing outside those walls and it became a physical embodiment of the album itself. POWER is our own example that there’s always a way forward when you are faced with limitations and red lights. It’s reignited our ambition and drive for what we can achieve. Hearing these songs, that’s what I feel and hear: power. And that’s what the last two years have made us feel as a band: totally empowered.”

It all feels like something of a middle finger to expectation and convention.
The biggest and best of this week’s new releases.
A weekend of pure euphoria, a showcase of the incredible talent in British rock and metal in 2021, and a chance to feel hopeful at the prospect of a future without social distancing or masks.
Erratic and unrefined.
