Twin Sister’s new album In Heaven [Domino Records] is drawing comparisons to 80′s dreamweavers such as Cocteau Twins and quirky disco-infused electro charmers, Stereolab (listen to single “Bad Street”), vocalist Andrea Estella channeling an otherworldly atmosphere that seems too gauzy to be emitted from a real girl. Estella taps into the swirling sounds of the synths in “Kimmi In a Rice Field” and floats her voice above them in a lofty, echoed prettiness that lends a strange beauty to a song that is a bit planted in the mind of a sleepwalker. Building on that strange beauty, Estella had a hand in the video for the song, co-directed by drummer Bryan Ujueta and filmmaker Dan Devine — creepy or not, it is a fascinating glimpse into the creative brains of Twin Sister, whose reconstruction of a slightly dusty genre is nothing but sparkling.
