On Saturday 11 August, Melbourne-based violin and drums duo Xani Kolac (electric violin/vocals) and Mark Leahy (drums) will take over the Kew Court House stage with their unique art-pop sound and energetic performance style.
In a unique blend of electronic music and pop, The Twoks interweave violin and percussion to create dance music that fills the room – an unexpected result from a duo.
The Twoks have released three albums and have been making tunes together for the past six years, taking inspiration from music greats such as Sigur Ros, Kate Bush, Phoenix, Leonard Cohen and Pat Benatar.
Despite the end of their romantic relationship in 2015, Xani and Mark are more together than ever before. The Twoks spent a year working on their highly anticipated EP, including four tracks written after their split in a bid to bare all in their new show. The songs are deeply personal but are written collaboratively showcasing their musical triumph and formidable friendship on and off the stage.
Hear the truly one-of-a-kind duo live in the intimate setting of Kew Court House performing their new music as well as some well-known covers. Expect epic layering of electric violins, percussive grooves, live looping and open and honest stories all completely improvised.
