Twist And Shout

Inspired by the traumatic birth and unexpected death of his infant daughter in 2018, this 'humble temple of songs' was mostly written in India, where Sweeney's family made a return trip to deliver Rishi's ashes to the Ganges. The album's construction took place over the next two years in a San Francisco apartment studio with longtime collaborators Joe Santarpia (Mac DeMarco) and Roberto Pagano (Tonsstartssbandht) - and features musical contributions from some of Sweeney's bandmates in Healing Potpourri. The rich and heavenly synth tones, breathy instrumental moments, and earthy rhythmic textures carry the emotional weight of a very heavy subject matter with a deft playfulness akin to a group of spirits guiding us through untethered dimensions.
