Twin Oaks is a Los Angeles-based band formed by longtime friends Lauren Brown & Aaron Domingo. Spending their earlier days as a bedroom folk act, the band gained local and UK attention with their dream pop/folk-infused lead track "Find A Way” from the self-produced The Lion's Den mini album. They drove in a modest fanbase and gained a feature on Simon Raymonde's (of Cocteau Twins) radio show as well as a 3 week #1 spot on UK’s Amazing Radio Top 40.
With a broadened expanse for cinematic & ethereal soundscapes from their first shows, Twin Oaks went on to record the debut full-length White Noise at Henson Studios in Los Angeles. The album's lead single "Animal" showcased a wide and layered sound influenced by post-rock and dream pop elements of Sigur Rós, Lanterns On The Lake, Mogwai & Daughter.
The duo went back into recording at Aaron's home studio and joined with Grammy Award-Winning engineer Cassidy Turbin (Beck, Bat for Lashes, Miya Folick) to helm mixing & post-production duties for the 2017 released Collapse EP. Twin Oaks then released the self-produced Living Rooms EP shortly after, which contains a stripped down yet emotionally charged collection of songs drawn from the bands quieter origins.
Twin Oaks are joined by Marilyn Beltran & Aroldo Rios to complete the live band. Currently interchanging each live performance in-between quiet emotion to explosive post rock builds, the band managed to create a sound of their own. Twin Oaks has shared the stage with Mt. Joy, Emma Ruth Rundle, Flora Cash, AKW, & NAVVI. They are currently cooped up in Claremont, CA working on their sophomore album, set to release in early 2019.
"Their sparse approach creates a spaciousness that lets the bittersweet compositions breathe, suffused with the calmness of a sunlit early morning. One could easily describe it as dreamy or blissful, but there's nary a shrouded note - these are songs that pulsate with quiet emotion and golden-hued translucence." - The Deli Mag
"There is also a sliver of melancholy which permeates through the album, providing that strange tinge of sadness that all the best dreams leave behind." - Wake The Deaf
"With soft enticing and hypnotizing vocals, accompanied with steady yet powerful drums, light guitar flowing in sync with the tune they transition into an ending made up of an explosion of musical energy that’s timed to perfection." - Wolf In A Suit
