Today, with the release of their guitar-heavy lead single “Electrify Me,” the NYC-based indie-rock duo Twilight Muse have announced A Moment Out Of Time, their debut album, slated for release on June 23rd.
Eclectic in genre, yet cohesive in vision, Twilight Muse writes alluring duets with diverse influences ranging from Americana to New Wave to modern R&B. Storyteller narratives unfold with keen insights, hard-fought wisdom, and literate wordsmithing. The duo’s originals include sensual, slow-burn ballads, frisky rockers, and contemplative, mid-tempo tunes. Throughout its catalogue, the twosome’s fluid creativity shines through with duelling lead vocals, interlacing vocal harmonies, and intuitive chemistry as songwriters, where each contributor finishes the other’s lines.
Comments singer/songwriter Meg Pollaro on the band’s lead single:
“‘Electrify Me’ is a tune that showcases another side of Twilight Muse. It’s our more New Wave, guitar-heavy rocker drawing inspiration from everyone from The Cars to the Allman Brothers to the Clash. It includes themes of romance and lust as well as the desire to stop the passage of time and become someone else, living an ‘electric dream.’”
Twilight Muse’s evocative and intriguingly layered name speaks to the indie-rock duo’s artistic perspective. “We write songs about love, life, and longing that are informed by real-life experiences like being in a long-term relationship and raising kids,” Meg adds. “And we address these universal themes alternately from a female and male perspective,” adds singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Andrew Shapiro.
“Twilight” is a time of day, but also suggests a stage in one’s life. “Muse” can mean being absorbed in thought or being an artistic source of inspiration. So, one could interpret the NYC-based artist’s name to signify a mature time in life being fodder for self-reflective creativity.
A Moment Out Of Time was produced by the Emmy-nominated LA producer and composer Dan Mackenzie (Joss Stone, Martin Sexton); producer Will Baker, who owns Brooklyn’s Slide Studios; and Cutting Room producer Jason Cummings. The band will be celebrating the album release with a performance at The Mercury Lounge in NYC on Tuesday, July 11th.
