Artist: Twin Wild
Why? With one of the purest rock sounds I’ve heard in a while, London based Twin Wild bring that good old British rebellious nature that mixes so well with their music creating something with a pull so powerful that you can’t help and tap your feet to the beat of the drums, throw an air guitar chord or two and aim at singing along to a voice so powerful that simply owns the flow of the song.
