Release Date 04/06/2021
North London’s Sorry have today shared their brand new EP Twixtustwain alongside the official digital release of their two 2017 mixtapes Home Demo/ns Vol I. and Home Demo/ns Vol. II, reworked and available across streaming platforms for the very first time. Sorry have also shared the videos for EP tracks ‘Don’t Be Scared’, ‘Things To Hold Onto’, and ‘Favourite’ created by Flasha Prod. (Sorry’s own Asha Lorenz and longtime collaborator Flo Webb) completing a full audio-visual compliment which also includes the previously released ‘Cigarette Packet’ and ‘Separate’. Their first new project since the release of sensational debut album 925 on Domino last year, the Twixtustwain EP finds the band delving back into a more experimental, cut-and-paste electronic palette all the while still coursing with their signature gnarled sensitivity.
Having met at school in London, Lorenz and O’Bryen have created their own world in which nothing is quite as it seems. As Sorry, they make guitar music that is familiar yet strange at the same time, aided in their efforts by drummer Lincoln Barrett and bassist Campbell Baum. Sleazy riffs rub up alongside hip-hop inspired beats, with tracks regularly flipping between neon-lit night time adventures and sugary sweet love songs. Inspired by everything from Hermann Hesse to Aphex Twin, their precocious approach —an open-mindedness towards genre, self-producing the music, and directing accompanying videos—marks them out as a thoroughly 21st century band.
Earlier this month, Sorry released two Twixtustwain cuts - ‘Cigarette Packet’ and ‘Separate’ - co-produced with James Dring (Gorillaz, Jamie T, Nilüfer Yanya) which were praised by the likes of CLASH, DIY, Dork, The FADER, The Line Of Best Fit, The New York Times, NME, Stereogum, and more. Earlier this year Sorry released their live LP A Night At The Windmill - captured during their socially distanced show at the venue last year - as a Bandcamp exclusive limited to 500 pressings, with all proceeds going to The Windmill in Brixton.
