History

The band formed in 2008 when the five members of Twin Sister came together to work on Vampires With Dreaming Kids.[8] They relocated to Brooklyn where they built a small following.[2][9] Their EP 'Color Your Life' was released on Domino Records in the UK[10] and Infinite Best in the USA.[11]

Their song 'All Around And Away We Go' was voted No. 59 in the 2010 Pitchfork Media tracks of the year poll[12] and they were voted at No. 3 in the 'Best hope for 2011' section of the readers poll.[13]

The 2012 hip-hop hit 'The Recipe' by Kendrick Lamar featuring Dr. Dre and produced by Scoop Deville samples Twin Sister's song 'Meet the Frownies'.

Andrea Estella replaced Leighton Meester as Carrie Bishop in the Kickstarter funded Veronica Mars Movie (2014).[14]
