On When We Think About Time, Twin River are not the glossy band you know from their previous recordings. Where Should The Light Go Out and Passing Shade sparkle under layers of synths and effects, the Vancouver-based band’s latest release is six guitar-driven songs with rough edges and raw energy. Twin River’s core members Courtney Ewan (vocals/guitar) and Andy Bishop (guitar) recorded When We Think About Time at the Hive Creative Labs on Vancouver Island with a new team of collaborators: Ladyhawk’s Ryan Peters on drums and Darcy Hancock on bass alongside Louise Burns and Yukon Blonde’s Rebecca Gray who both provided backing vocals. Together they buzz excitedly through the EP’s hook-filled opener “I’m Alright” and fuzzed-out punky tracks like “Other Side.” Touching on the ways relationships evolve, Ewan’s lyrics are heavy but across the EP she returns to positive affirmations and is hopeful about what lies ahead. On “Other Side,” Ewan visualizes the future, smirks, and sings, “I’ll feel better and I’ll be laughing.” When We Think About Time is about finding control and putting yourself back together.
