Review:: Twin Forks | Twin Forks

Fans of Dashboard Confessional will love former DC-frontman Chris Carrabba’s new venture into Americana and folk rock with Twin Forks. Formed not too long ago, in 2011, Twin Forks beautifully combines male and female vocals, and essentially brings us back to American roots – with a modern twist, of course.  

While the band released an EP in 2013, this is their first full-length, debut album. Twin Forks the album has a handful of upbeat, catchy tunes and a hint of banjo-type twang that surprisingly doesn’t bother me… and I’m typically not the biggest fan of anything with twang. But the other portion of the album is a soft, almost romantic sound similar to some of Carrabba’s Dashboard Confessional. Makes sense to stick with a system that works, right? Regardless, Twin Forks as a whole is a melodic journey from start to finish that I enjoyed much more than I expected to. I’d even go so far to say that Twin Forks by Twin Forks is a great soundtrack for the impending summer. With music that is perfect for a late night bonfire with friends or driving with the windows down on a warm, sunny day, I wouldn’t have thought it to be anything less than this from Chris Carrabba.

Twin Forks is currently on tour to support the new album, and have tour dates through mid-May in the US and Canada.
