Welsh-born twst started laying down tracks when she was just fourteen. Stemming from a family of chicken farmers, music wasn’t exactly in her blood but after being inspired by the sounds of David Bowie and Kate Bush, she immersed herself in music, learning how to write and produce. Finding refuge in the studio in the otherwise isolated Welsh valleys, years honing her craft has led to the creation of her first EP ‘TWST0001’: five tracks of digi-pop which flips from Disney-esque vocals to 100 gecs beats in a blink of an eye.
