Album Preview: Psychic Twin - "Strangers" 7" EP

Psychic Twin, a Chicago based electro-pop group, are gearing up to embark on a US tour next week including SXSW in Austin, TX. To prep for this tour, they also shared a B-side titled "Dream State," which will be included on their upcoming 7" titled Strangers (March 7, Polyvinyl).

Psychic Twin emerged nearly two-and-half years ago when Erin Fein, "indebted to 80's new-wave," began writing a series of "intensely personal" and "nervously rhythmic" songs. As Fein doubled her vocals, during the recording process, she was overwhelmed with the surreal sense that she was recording with her twin. Fein admits, "In an ideal situation, there would have been two of me singing and playing the music," but with that being nearly impossible she is joined by Brett Sanderson, who provides a fluid backdrop to her "propulsive electronica" and "shimmering snyth-rock." Psychic Twin are subtle beats joined by synthesizers and keys, which assist in the construction of her melodic pop songs that are often  both mysterious and romantic.
