For the past several years, Tom Christie has been arranging an ever-twisting and shifting song of his own.
Beginning in upstate New York where he grew up, Tom fleshed out the soft and intricate songs that became the first Fraternal Twin album Skin Gets Hot. Released quietly in the spring of 2015, the album passed from fan to fan and developed a cult reputation based on its uniquely intimate display of raw emotion.

Their sophomore album Homeworlding is an impressively natural progression from their debut. Fleetwood Mac-indebted pop songs, Tom Verlaine-esque guitar leads, ambient composition and watery folk songs quickly pass by in a way that demands repeat listens in order to fully comprehend the depth of the lyrics and songwriting. And while these components all seem disparate on paper, they’re tied together by a very specific sensibility. You could call it an astral peace or a zen headspace, but the commonality throughout Homeworlding is an acceptance of the vast world around you and the fact that your own fate is nearly always out of your control.
