“Entrancing” is the word to describe Twin Brother (so much so that they’ve joined the Life Is Beautiful lineup). After splitting for reasons that remain unknown, the group is back together and roping in all the high-waisted, mom-jean-wearing hipsters. Onstage for about 60 minutes, performing some ballads lasting up to six minutes, the band indeed entranced a crowd that never grew tired of them. With crisp vocals and a nostalgic feel, their similarities to Fleet Foxes are indisputable. “Different Hue” mixed a relaxed, bluesy harmony with intermittent sounds of garage rock, a la The Strokes. “Places With Names,” one of their more spirited songs, set the rest of the night in motion. If you didn’t go in a devoted lover of Twin Brother and only came early to save a spot to see Washed Out, you have undoubtedly since been drawn in by Twin Brother’s irresistible lure and have been listening to them on a loop. Don’t be ashamed—we’ve all done it. ★★★☆☆
