All Tvvins capped a triumphant 2017 by playing to 15,000 people at the 3Arena (2FM Xmas Ball), alongside a Choice Music Prize nomination for their excellent debut album, IIVV. A string of mesmerising singles as seen the band straddle both the commercial and alternative airwaves, while their increasingly mind-blowing live show has seen them fill venues like Dublin’s Olympia with ease.
Along the way, they have toured Europe, played SXSW, shared stages with Arcade Fire, Foals and Pixies; amassed over 10 million spotify streams; and Lar was introduced to The Edge of U2 fame, who was not only “very humble and a really nice dude”, but already knew All Tvvins’ music.
The band are currently working on their follow up album to their debut and are scheduled to release it later in 2018. Whereas they previously painstakingly crafted each song together, they instead found themselves creating almost completed ideas individually before allowing the other partner to put their stamp on it.
Most of the new tracks emerged on piano and synths before being fleshed out into a band dynamic. Inspired by a whole world of influences, Lar describes them as being “varied and extreme” and “emotionally charged”, while Conor notes that his interest in keys means that he has been writing a lot more on piano.
Expect some new tracks at the Opera House show, delivered by one of the most savvy, cutting edge and talented musical duos Ireland has to offer.
