The Twang are an indie rock band from Birmingham, England, formed in 2001.
The end of 2006 saw one of those moments in the UK music scene. Unheard of until October of the year, by December, a five piece band called The Twang were the subject of discussion in the pages of the NME, the message boards of a hundred band sites, the A & R departments of pretty much every record label of size in the UK whilst their demos were being played on BBC Radio One in the middle of the day. After some very nice free dinners and compiling an address book filled with the names of the movers and shakers in British music, The Twang signed with B-Unique in December of 2006 and began to record tracks for their debut album. “Love It When I Feel Like This” was released in June, 2007 and climbed the UK charts to #3. The band released their second album, Jewellery Quarter, in August 2009.
“He’s got the attitude of Liam Gallagher and the charm of Tom Meighan. Now Phil Etheridge and his band The Twang, are all set to be one of 2007’s rising stars” THE SUN
“If there’s one name to remember from all those January new band lists, make sure it’s The Twang: five baggy loving hooligans from Birmingham who’ve got the swaggering terrace anthems, 24 hour party poetry and the Gallaghers godly melodic touch down pat” UNCUT
