Twin Bandit
For You

Vancouver-based folk duo Twin Bandit have a solid piece of relaxing summer music on their hands with their new album, For You. While the duo is classified as “folk,” you can definitely hear a slight country twang in a handful of their songs (“Waltz” and “Tumbleweeds” especially), but it mostly works quite well. Standout tracks include “Shine,” “Crown” and “Tides,” which are beautifully sung with an instrumental background and honey-sweet lyrics. You’re not going to find any fast, jaunty bops on this record, but that’s not the message that For You is trying to convey. It’s a lovely summer love letter that needs to be savoured all at once, and it’s equally impressive that this is only the duo’s debut album. Overall, it’s a wonderfully toned piece of music for the easy listener.
