Don't bother asking Twin Peaks about the deeper meaning of their band name. They simply thought it sounded cool, which explains why their second album Wild Onion isn't as spooky or surreal as David Lynch's short-lived TV show. It's more like a modern day Nuggets, with Black Lips, Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall curating instead of Lenny Kaye. Not literally, of course. But the spirit of those garage demigods is alive and well alongside subtle nods to everything from the Pixies and Tame Impala to the godfathers of guitar-guided pop music, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys. Having just wrapped a national tour in support of their fellow Chicagoans The Orwells and midwest dates with Arctic Monkeys, Twin Peaks are on the road currently with Brit buzz band Eagulls and will follow that with a headline club tour of all major US markets around release date."The Chicago teenagers who make up the band Twin Peaks make a confident old-school indie rock chug that should be beyond their years."--Stereogum.
