Twin Sister @ Mercury Lounge in September (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Over the holiday weekend, Brooklyn's Twin Sister posted a new track titled "Hindoo House" on their website. Frontwoman Andrea Estella offered the following...

I've been trying to quit smoking for the past couple of days. As a way of occupying my mind, I decided to do a fresh install on my laptop (wish there was a way to not make that sound as nerdy as it is). Unfortunately, I somehow managed to delete a year's worth of samples and demos/sessions in the process. I'm blaming the vision of dancing cigarettes as the source of my troubles. This song is one of the things I'd been working on, the MP3 was sitting around in an email I sent to a friend. Since the session is gone, I figured sharing it with you would be a fitting funeral.

This is all coming off a little darker than I intended. I'm excited that a year's worth of stuff is gone, it's liberating. The things that will get made next year will be better, I'm thankful to have a fresh start.

Twin Sister are set to kick off a January/February tour with Ava Luna, which hits the Empty Bottle on February 17th. Tickets are still available.

The band's last show of 2011 will be a BV Holiday Party at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC, exactly two months earlier (12/17).
