THE LEMON TWIGS'S NEW YORK-INSPIRED PLAYLIST

back to list

“It’s always been great playing small venues in New York City to try out new material, and it ends up shaping how we perform the songs on the road.”

When it comes to contemporary New York rock bands, The Lemon Twigs are the real deal. With a sound and style channeling decades long past—think ’60s baroque pop bands like The Beatles and The Zombies, and ’70s power-pop and art-rock outfits like Big Star and Todd Rundgren—brothers Brian and Michael D’Addario have proven they are well worth the hype. They know their way around a stage, too, with a live show (high-kicks and all) that would do their musical idols proud.

Following on from the release of their Brothers of Destruction EP late last year, and feature on This is New York, Vol. 5 alongside some of our all-time favorite artists—Angel Olsen, Warpaint, and Blood Orange, the siblings from Long Island share exclusively with GrandLife the songs that speak to their notion of New York.
