Alternately brash and endearing Melbourne foursome Twerps return with new single Work It Out, their first new material since last-year’s celebrated self titled debut album.
After a three month stint in the US earlier this year, which took in SXSW and a 18 date tour supporting Real Estate, the band jumped back into the studio to record this new three song single, which emerges as a co-release between Chapter Music and New York label Underwater Peoples.
￼While maintaining the band’s trademark cheeky charm, Work It Out shows a newfound confidence, an extra lick of polish.
In contrast, B-side He’s In Stock is a driving, bratty complaint, while Recall admits catchily to forgetting the name of a one night stand. He’s In Stock was premiered on Stereogum in August, and picked up by the likes of The Fader, Pitchfork, RCRD LBL and many others. It has now had more than 40,000 Soundcloud listens. Pitchfork premiered Work It Out shortly after, while in turn the endearing Work It Out video was premiered by Stereogum.
The new single coincides with another North American tour for Twerps, one which has already taken in CMJ showcases and a run of dates with Real Estate bassist Alex Bleeker, and finishes over the next week with a run of West Coast shows, including gigs in San Francisco and LA with White Fence. Full tour dates here!
