Broken Twin is the nom de plume of Danish singer-songwriter Majke Voss Romme, whose stunning debut album, May, was released April 29 on Anti. Dark and stormy, the record is suffused in Romme's melancholy, piano-driven dirges. She applies the same formula to her cover of Johnny Thunder's "You Can't Wrap Your Arms Around A Memory," transforming the power pop track into a haunting ballad. Says Romme, "We shot this while rehearsing for our first show ever as a band. It's always nerve wrecking playing live with new people for the first time. I like those moments. It makes everyone so tense and aware. It's vulnerable. No one wants to be the one fucking up." Watch Romme perform the song in the video above and read our Best New Artist profile of the singer while you're at it.
