Summer Twins

Today’s #selftitledpremiere is a perfect example of the DIY, 360-degree vision that’s driven Summer Twins for the past five years. Having already played in the short-lived Riverside band The Scandells, sisters Chelsea and Justine Brown have refined their restless sound even further over the course of several Burger releases, leading right up to this month’s Limbo LP. Here’s what Chelsea had to say about the high concept video for “Demons,” along with a complete stream of the record:

Everyone has their own “demons”—they’re the little voices in the back of your mind that make you doubt yourself and tell you not to take risks. They can be vicious; they’ll lure you in and beckon you back to safety. If you fall into their trap, you become a victim, allowing your demons to stunt your potential. But if you can find the courage to face them and explore that darker side of your mind that you’d often rather ignore, you might just have a breakthrough and discover artistic bliss. In a way these demons are the catalyst in making your vision come to life—they may just put you through hell first.

For our video we wanted to portray our demons in a strange alternate “Limbo” world. We took inspiration from the 1966 Czechoslovak film Sedmikrásky (or “Daisies”) and worked with director Owen Swchartzbard to create the story. All of the props were handmade with the help of our friends and we shot the video on a hot day at the dry river bottom in our hometown of Riverside.
