On this new single, this brand spankin’ L.A. duo takes a White Stripes vibe up to the Hollywood sign via some bright sonic swing. Produced by Bruce Duff (Prima Donna, Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs) and mixed by longtime garage rock maestro Jim Diamond (Dirtbombs, White Stripes), and wrapped up in cover art from Stephen Blickenstaff (the Cramps’ Bad Music For Bad People), the gutter credentials are all in order. You can check Two Tens out on their quick jaunt that’s coming up—tour dates below—to see if they bring it equally crashy in the live setting.
Barely a year old, they’ve already played SXSW, opened for classic inspirations like the Sonics and Naked Raygun, and had a tune in the Showtime show, Shameless. Yeah, there’re probably some biz connections going on here, but it doesn’t seem to dampen the fun swagger of “Dreams.”
The tune comes from Two Tens debut LP, Volume, out February 26 on Ugly Sugar Records.
