Twin Sister

In March 2010, Brooklyn quintet Twin Sister released an EP called Color Your Life. It's a hazy, freewheeling record, especially the standout track, the charming and romantic "All Around and Away We Go." Twin Sister's lush dream-pop sounds a little like if Beach House had more members. Vocalist — and, despite their moniker, the band's sole female — Andrea Estella sings in a breathless style, backed by variegated layers of shimmering keys and guitars. This is pure relaxation music that pristinely conjures up clouds in a blue sky, kites fluttering in the wind or anything else related to a peaceful, breezy day.
