The England based synthwave trio Twist Helix are planning to release the LP Ouseburn later in the year.
To be more specific Twist Helix are based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and Ouseburn is an album of both sadness and delight.
To pin things down a little more the trio are actually based out of Ouseburn Valley which was at one time an industrial beating heart in North East England but, in common with the deindustrialisation of the manufacturing and extraction industries in the ’80s across the UK, Ouseburn Valley was left to fend for itself in its decline as a powerhouse of industry and over time has reinvented itself as the creative heart and soul of Newcastle Upon Tyne and a hub for musicians and music fans (sharper eyed readers will have noticed frequent images used over the years of performances at The Cluny) – hence an album tinged with both sadness and equally joy at the reincarnation of itself to once again become a vibrant centre.
The first song to surface from the LP and title track, Ouseburn (available as a stand alone single on bandcamp), sets the scene for the whole album reflecting as it does both on the past and the present.
