About a month and a half before Twin Sister packs its dreamy indie-pop into a van and treks across the United States for a 22-city tour, the Long Island quintet figured a stop at Midtown Miami's Bardot would be a fitting warmup.
Scheduled for December 15, this show is part of Bardot's Living Room Sessions, a weekly music series showcasing some of the finest indie talent 'round the blogosphere in an incredibly intimate setting. No stage, no barricades -- just you and the band.
Following the success of 2010's Color Your Life EP, Twin Sister dropped its full-length debut, In Heaven, earlier this year. It quickly became a favorite among music critics and fans alike.
When the group released "Bad Street," the first single off In Heaven, the '80s-inspired electro-funk track quickly became a late-summer anthem. Fun fact: The corresponding video was actually shot at lead singer Andrea Estella's family's home in Long Island and depicts the band setting up for a party.
Estella recalls throwing neighborhood parties with Salvadoran and Puerto Rican families growing up. She figured it'd be sweet to pay homage to those childhood memories via a quirky video.
Ain't that cute?
