Queer pop duo TWINKIDS is pianist-producer Matt Young and Tokyo-native singer-songwriter Gene Fukui. After meeting at Oberlin College & Conservatory in northeast Ohio – the same rural campus that spawned the likes of Teengirl Fantasy, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Liz Phair – the two quickly discovered a mutual reverence for electronic music and began writing, producing, and performing as one.
They went on to study at the renowned Banff Centre in Canada under Brendan Canning of Broken Social Scene.
TWINKIDS bring together Gene’s experience as a J-pop songwriter and Matt’s background in classical piano, delivering genre-bending tunes with catchy hooks and lush harmonies. Following releases on Cascine, Yellow Year Records, a collaboration with Australian singer-songwriter Sophie Lowe, and official remixes for Dawn Richard and Ghostly International, the LA-based duo signed with Om Records and garnered a number one charting song on Hype Machine with ‘Jigoku Tengoku’ along with a national tour with Matt and Kim and press support from NYLON, THE FADER, Stereogum, Billboard, and OUT Magazine.
Last summer TWINKIDS released their debut EP “Boys Love”, with the EP title paying homage to the gay romance manga genre of the same name. Drawing influence from 80’s J-pop and artists like Imogen Heap and Bjork, the EP’s five songs tell coming-of-age stories about falling in love.
