In the House of Yes
Out of the Dark
Deemed buzzworthy on the strength of their 2010 single "All Around and Away We Go," Mr. Twin Sister (which added the "Mr." for this record) both build on and distance themselves from that term here. The band's brooding, lascivious post-disco grooves come into sharp focus here, with vocalist Andrea Estella channeling Dusty Springfield circa The Look of Love. "In the House of Yes" is churning yet inviting house, and "Out of the Dark" pulses with a dark, industrial feel. "Rude Boy" is atmospheric funk. Distinctly cosmopolitan, Mr. Twin Sister is an after-hours soundtrack for half-remembered adventures.
