What: Twinsy Single Launch
When: Friday, October 12 at 8.30pm
Where: Karova Lounge, corner Camp and Field streets
TWO OF Ballarat's most-loved musicians have joined forces to form a duo that brings the sounds of summer to town.
Comprised of Hunting Grounds' lead singer Michael Belsar and Yacht Club DJs' Guy Chappell, the newly-formed band Twinsy will be performing its debut live show in Ballarat on Friday night.
After Chappell penned some of his own tunes and asked Belsar to feature on a couple of songs, the duo Twinsy was born.
"We had an awful winter last year. It was so frustrating," Belsar said.
"Half way through we just wanted to get out.
"Our music is very much anti-Ballarat-weather music. It's a protest to God."
The Twinsy boys are no strangers to the Australian music scene.
Having steadily built a swirl of interest internationally while playing sold-out tours and festival appearances with their respective acts, these guys have joined forces to give Ballarat a taste of what summer should really be about.
The songs on their upcoming EP Sweat It Out are drenched in head bopping, pina colada swilling, energetic vibes which are sure to immerse anyone in the favourite season of the year.
The single Water Bombs, to be released at Karova Lounge on Friday, raided the air waves on triple j earlier in the year. Belsar said the song was about giving up on the things you cared about, even though the video clip showed a slightly different interpretation.
"In all the Hunting Grounds stuff I always played a really big part artistically in how the videos were done but with Twinsy, it was the first time I have been in a situation where we told the director to do what he wanted.
"We got a pitch and then saw it right at the end. It's basically about the uprising of children who take over and become the dominant force in society."
After playing in Ballarat, Twinsy will set to tour nationally with friends Last Dinosaurs.
