Twin Sister, 'In Heaven' (Domino)

6
In Heaven
Critical Mass
Release Date: September 27, 2011
Label: Domino

by Jon Young

Paced by sweetly modest singer Andrea Estrella, this Long Island quintet's dreamy, synth-inflected pop produces quietly mesmerizing drama, with occasional tedious detours. "Daniel" (a wistful confession of longing) and "Spain" (which evokes a sultry James Bond score) suggest intriguing worlds of shadowy motives and simmering appetites, though funkier attempts on "Bad Street" fall clumsily flat. Eric Cordona's twangy guitar keeps the band mostly on course, injecting needed tension without spoiling the hazy vibe. But for all its languid rookie charms, In Heaven might be best remembered as the harbinger of a more consistent sequel.
