Chapter Music announces a new EP by warmhearted Melbourne pop scallywags The Twerps! This is the first in Chapter Music’s new EP series, featuring a vinyl single accompanied by a CD with extra tracks.
Forming late 2008 around charismatic guitarist/vocalist Marty Frawley (son of much-missed Paul Kelly & the Dots member Maurice Frawley) and bassist Rick Milovanovic, the Twerps have quickly risen to become one of Melbourne’s favourite lo-fi pop bands. They’ve recently scored support slots for the likes of Deerhunter and the Bats, with shows coming up in December supporting California’s The Oh Sees.
Their debut release features eight (or is that nine?) short, simple but incredibly infectious tracks, recorded to analogue tape by Eddy Current Suppression Ring guitarist Mikey Young. Marty’s cheeky but heartfelt songs are complemented by the crystalline guitar lines of guitarist Julia MacFarlane (ex Batrider) and the sympathetic percussion of drummer Patrick O’Neill.
The EP takes the form of a four song vinyl single, plus a CD with bonus tracks.
