We Are Twin – The Way We Touch

Germany-raised Sri Lankan multi-instrumentalist and producer Nicolas Balachandran met New York-born and bred singer songwriter Gabi Christine during a 2009 songwriting session. After that first meeting, they had fifteen songs. That’s really when WE ARE TWIN came to life and began making music. “Our creative minds are identical,” Gabi says. “It’s the most natural thing in the world.” The group continued penning countless songs. Along the way, they landed upon a style that dips into rock ‘n’ roll soul, electronic production, Pop sensibility and even a little classical orchestration. Nicolas explains, “Although the instrumentation is very rock ‘n’ roll with synthesizers and guitars, we try to create moments that feel like you’re listening to a symphony. At the same time, we won’t record a song unless we can sit down with acoustic guitars and coerce a timeless feeling from it.” “I want the music to help listeners—even if it transports them to some place like a movie does. It’s an experience that’s meant to be enjoyed,” Gabi elaborates. The same musical feel vibrantly colors their five-song debut EP, WE ARE TWIN, being released by A&M/Octone Records. WE ARE TWIN’s first single “The Way We Touch” builds from a driving beat into an unshakable chorus. Gabi delivers each word with bluesy cadence echoing voices like Amy Winehouse and Grace Potter with infectious passion matched by a warm soundscape bristling with synths, keys, and strings.

We Are Twin – The Way We Touch

We Are Twin – The Way We Touch Lyrics:
I’ve got my hands around your neck, my lips up on your chest
You love it how I need you boy
Oh dare I say the rest
The people they can stare, I don’t mind it, I don’t care
As long as we together, we got love extraordinaire
When we were by the ocean and you turned to me to say
Girl don’t you ever go and try to change no matter what
Anybody says
If you could be my best friend, then I would build a home
Where the both of us can live alone, where you can grow into your own

You’d be the best that I ever hoped for
I love it how I can’t resist the way you are
The way we touch
If we are a match, I’d give you everything I longed for
I love it how I can’t resist the way you are
The way we touch.

You got me on a hook, from the moment you said baby
If I faint from overheating, call the marshall Mr. Davy
I’m running out of breath, I feel it in my head
I can’t go home without you boy
Let’s hit the road to live!
If you would be my hero, then I would be your girl
You could have me anytime you want, even in the morning sun
I only have my Chevy and the keys to my heart
Oh take me for a ride to the moon
I forget the world when I’m with you!
