Twin Sister — In Heaven

NYC indie-pop dreamers concoct a solid debut album after an infectious single.


Matt Carney

Much to my delight, it showed up last summer alongside fellow NYCers’ The Pains of Being Pure at Heart on a touring bill aimed at the Midwest, with a stop at OU’s campus (not three minutes’ walk from my house) right smack in the middle of it.
