Phil said:

“I just started writing down all my dreams (ones I woke up remembering) as like everyone’s, my dreams are weird as fuck especially during a night in the spare room when I’ve been misbehaving.  Jon came up with that insane bassline and I picked lines from my morning ramblings and spat um over the top.  That’s about the size of it.

Dream is Cloudy Room’s dysfunctional little cousin.

If ‘Everytime’ was strawberries n cream then Dream is strong skunk n Brandy.”

The Twang have spent over a decade defying expectation. From their beginnings in their Birmingham home town, vocalist Phil Etheridge, bassist Jon Watkin, guitarist Stu Hartland and drummer Ash Sheehan continue to wow audiences and win new fans with their electric live shows.

Having released four studio albums since 2007 they are in the studio making the Midlands magic happen once more.
