The Watson Twins (from the album HOLLER available on Bloodshot Records) (by Bryant Liggett)
The Watson Twins are hollering hard and high. Although that bellow does not come with a hint of anger or rough inflection. It does, however, come in via very direct, personal lyrics delivered loud and crystal clear. With The Watson Twins harmonies on full display in their latest release, HOLLER, The Watson Twins soundtrack the songs with Indie Roots, Singer-songwriter vibes, electric Folk, and Classic Country, all with subtle underpinnings of Gospel. It’s a wonderful display where the vocals are a star but also have equal billing from a top-notch band supporting the voices.
The title track is anthemic big, an opener that’s grand and glorious where an acoustic melody and electric fills support The Watson Twins introducing the album as they sing ‘hey, let me show you how to sing this song, just keep on trying harder, don’t worry if you get it wrong’. You’ll dig its big, singalong vibe.
“Hundred Miles” is timeless AM Gold, and the ladies nail Classic Country in “Honky Tonk Heart”, a cut that calls for tasseled sleeves and rhinestone studded pantsuits on display in front of a scorching Country band. It could be the Country cut of the year from a band that isn’t competing for the chart. “My Name” has an animated bounce with driving, rhythmic handclaps that give the track Gospel hints, and the closer in “Two Timin’” is flat out fun as The Watson Twins call out a cheat with more handclaps and big instrumentation. The hip harmonies, the smoking band, and a load of sass from The Twins drive HOLLER with stories about strong women calling the shots and doing a kick ass job taking charge. (by Bryant Liggett)
