The Lemon Twigs unveil new video, go to #1 in our emerging artists charts





The Lemon Twigs unveil new video, go to #1 in our emerging artists charts

It's somewhat ironic that one of the hottest and most provocatively stylish NYC bands of this decade is hailing from that strip of land New Yorkers often (always?) look down on: Long Island. The D'Addario Brothers, aka The Lemon Twigs, look and sound like something your average Brooklyn hipster might frown upon, but their predecessors from fifty years ago would have certainly disagreed with that stance. At a time when the majority of local rockers find inspiration in the noisy and boring looking '90s (by the way, was there a NYC grunge band in the '90s?), the duo, similarly to what Foxygen did five or so years ago, responds with a visually and sonically striking revival of the art pop of the '70s, with glamorous references to David Bowie's androginous look - which, by the way, was born after the frequentation of the promiscuous lifestyle surrounding Andy Wharol's NYC factory. But, of course, none of this would matter if their songs weren't powerful and memorable, which they are. Check out the video for single 'As Long As We're Together' (which took them to the Top 10 of our NYC charts for emerging artists on this same page) and the one for previous single 'These Words.'
