Premiere: Twist Helix – ‘Newcastle’

Following dynamic single ‘Graphite’, indie-electro trio Twist Helix have now shared another bold offering from their upcoming album Ouseburn. 

An ode to the band’s industrial hometown, ‘Newcastle’ flows with twinkling keys as the emotion-strewn vocals of frontwoman Bea Garcia soar. Propelled by ’80s-reminiscent vibes and luscious, electro-driven layers of sound, it’s an anthemic offering that builds with a stirring majesty. Interweaving a raw, impassioned power with catchy, uplifting hooks, it’s a truly euphoric slice of dreamy alt-pop.

Of the track, the band explain:

As a group we were tired of cliches of industrial decline, on ‘Newcastle’ we wanted to give a different vision of “The North”. We wanted to capture a feeling of optimism and possibility about our region and portray a city and its people rising like a phoenix from the ashes of industry.”
