Germany-raised Sri Lankan multi-instrumentalist and producer Nicholas Balachandran met New York-born and bred singer songwriter Gabi Christine during a 2009 songwriting session. After that first meeting, they had fifteen songs. That's really when WE ARE TWIN came to life and began making music. In 2013 Zackary Smith (Bass, Keys, vocals) & Justin Frazier (drums) joint the group.
"Our creative minds are identical," Gabi says. "It's the most natural thing how we make music together though we come from different backgrounds."
The group just finished their debut album called "xtra love" which will come out on the 11.11.2014. Along the way, they landed upon a style that dips into punk rock, soul & Pop sensibility.
Nicolas explains, "Although the instrumentation is very rock 'n' roll with synthesizers and guitars, we try to create moments that feel like you're listening to a symphony."
"I want the music to inspire listeners -- even if it transports them to some place like a movie does." Gabi elaborates.
