Harris’ Song of the Week: Lightspeed by Twin Atlantic


Let me guess, you haven’t heard of Twin Atlantic either. As of a week ago I had never heard the name but an email changed all that. Honestly I have not done extensive reasearch but from the one song they are giving away on their website I’m pretty impressed. After a few times through the song “Lightspeed,” I have concluded that it sounds like Dropkick Murphy’s mixed with The All American Rejects mixed with some third party that I have not figured out.

The song itself is a really cool blend in which you are really able to hear lead singer Sam McTrusty’s unique vocal stylings. The instrumental back up is nothing to write home about but the song is very well written and catchy as hell. Overall it is Sam’s vocals that draw you in and get you hooked. I am really interested to hear more from this band and if I’m lucky I will really soon. For now visit the Twin Atlantic Official Website and download the free track (it’s legal don’t worry) and let me know what you think of it.
