From Australia over Europe to North America, Xiu Xiu has performed their interpretation of the Twin Peaks soundtrack to captivated crowds across the world since it was commissioned by the Gallery of Modern Art for their David Lynch: Between Two Worlds exhibition in March 2015. Due to the overwhelming support and demand, their visceral take on Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch’s compositions was captured on a studio album with the help of producer Jherek Bischoff and mixer Greg Saunier. Plays The Music of Twin Peaks was released on Record Store Day 2016… and the album rapidly sold out.
Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh… Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey. A kiddley divey too, wouldn’t you?
