The Watson Twins

The Watson Twins are back with the first single from their forthcoming second album, Talking To You, Talking To Me, out through Vanguard Records in February. Having made their name poking out of the pockets of Jenny Lewis’s Rabbit Fur Coat, Leigh and Chandra Watson took centre stage in 2008 with Fire Songs, their debut full-length album. Talking To You, Talking To Me promises to expand the country-folk scope of that record with R&B, bossa nova, indie-pop and classic soul. ‘U-N-Me’ (whoever let them run with that title needs a good talking to) has a touch of the latter but is more US drivetime rock than anything else. It’s a straightforward but pleasing enough tune that cruises its way through two minutes without taking its foot off the accelerator or changing direction. The twins are as strong vocally as ever but lack much of the character and verve they showed with Lewis. Leigh Watson has said of the new record, “We wanted your body to move with every song”. They’re unlikely to achieve their goal with ‘U-N-Me’, though you might feel the urge to tap your fingers on the steering wheel. MP3 after the jump.
