Despite Lockdown, Tennessee Twin have kept themselves busy livestreaming as part of The Songs and Stories Collective as well as on their own for various pages and now by releasing their new single Every Story produced entirely remotely.
Opening with a strident electric guitar, Victoria’s gentle voice comes in as a wonderful counterpoint and starts telling the first story of the song. Geoff’s deeper voice is in stark contrast, but when they blend, they blend superbly, with the guitar, banjo and drums underpinning the vocals.
The track has a fabulous melody and a lovely rhythm to it, managing to be relaxed while keeping a certain pace to it.
The changes of tempo, the switch from acoustic guitar to electric guitar are clever and add to the feeling of a narrative, or story telling which is the theme of the track. Weaving mini stories into the lyrics we are reminded that there is more than meets the eye - and two sides to Every Story.
The words make you want to listen, to appreciate the stories contained in it, but you just can’t help tapping your foot and starting to sing along. The music draws you in just as much as the stories do!
The repetition of two sides to every story to end the song really makes the point and encourages you to always look at both sides of every story.
Every Story, the new single from Tennessee Twin is available to download and stream now.
