Finnish four-piece Black Twig say they play fuzzy pop songs, shoegaze, folk and droning rock songs. They can compete with the better jangle pop bands from Melbourne, but their work is a bit darker (the influence of the colder climate?), and the chance that an Australian band will name a song Puuhastelu is a lot smaller (this instrumental track shows how the band members work: they start out with improvisation and spacey jams, but somehow compositions and thought-out structures begin to build up). Their new album, recorded during 2017-2020, is out now through Soliti. Apparently they weren’t looking for magic, but they found it. RIYL Felt, Tracy Bryant, Razorcuts.
