The Lemon Twigs were founded by brothers Brian and Michael D'Addario while they were both students at Hicksville High School on Long Island, New York. The siblings both perform lead vocals, lead guitar, drums and occasional other instruments.

On their debut album, "Do Hollywood", each brother takes the lead on vocals and guitar on the songs he composed; during live performances, this setup is preserved, with the remaining D'Addario manning the drumkit.

Fellow schoolmates Zeankowski and Ayala (who has played with the D'Addarios on and off since their youth) handle, respectively, bass and keyboards when the Twigs play live. Ayala is also a vocalist and figures prominently in the harmonies and contrapuntal backing vocals that are a key component of The Lemon Twigs' sound. He announced the debut of his side project, Dr. Danny, in May 2017.

The Lemon Twigs write and play music that updates the classic rock sound of 60s baroque pop like The Beatles, The Beach Boys and The Zombies and the 70s power-pop and art-rock styles of Big Star, Badfinger, The Raspberries, 10cc and Todd Rundgren. The Times characterized The Lemon Twigs as "a modern-day band combining the melodic, harmony-rich soft rock of Wings and Supertramp, the underground cool of Big Star and the Ramones, and the theatricality of Broadway musicals."[2] The Guardian cited the "humbling beauty of their songs" and their "sumptuous harmonies."[3]

The band was signed to British alternative music label 4AD in 2015. Their debut album, Do Hollywood, was released in October 2016 to widespread critical acclaim.[citation needed] A number of diverse pop music figures have publicly expressed admiration for the Twigs: Elton John, The Zombies, Boy George, Laura Marling, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Gary Brooker of Procol Harum, and Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance.[citation needed]

The Lemon Twigs served as opening act for fellow New York City/Long Island-based alt-rockers Sunflower Bean on their East Coast tour in late 2016 and performed on television programs like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, CBS This Morning "Saturday Sessions" and Conan along the way. In early 2017 it was announced that the band would play on day one of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California on April 14, 2017. This performance saw the Twigs joined by one of the band's "favorite musicians ever, in the whole world", Todd Rundgren, to play "Couldn't I Just Tell You" from Rundgren's classic 1972 double album, Something/Anything?.

The Lemon Twigs released the Do Hollywood tracks "These Words" and "As Long As We're Together" as a double-A-side single and made videos for both songs. The third single was album opener "I Wanna Prove to You" and features a video directed by Nick Roney.
