Press Praise for Summer Twins
On sunny pop gem, “I Don’t Care”…the vocal harmonies of sisters Chelsea and Justine along with the shimmering guitar melodies paint a portrait of those missed summer days at the beach.
Get Bent

Each repeat listen to the California dream-pop duo’s lazy, hazy, crazy debut adds another layer of shimmering, pink pleasure. Sisters Chelsea and Justine Brown quickly start to sound like a band you’ve had in your collection for years – and it’s more than simple 90s nostalgia for a brand of pop ala The Cardigans that the Summer Twins wholly embrace.

The sort of album indie rock fans will adore.
Joy of Violent Movement

Somewhere along the way I totally missed the boat on this duo, but I’m going to go ahead and take a better late than never approach with them. Mostly because I just really dig this upbeat, retro number.

More on the Summer Twins
Summer Twins are sisters Chelsea and Justine Brown. They write dreampop and rock ‘n roll songs with a touch of California sun. Born and raised in Riverside, Ca, the two decided they wanted to start a band from a young age. Inspired by their dad’s old rock ‘n roll records, Chelsea picked up the guitar, Justine taught herself to play drums, and they played in an all-girl band throughout their teens. They formed Summer Twins in 2008, with a focus on singing pop harmonies atop garage rock inspired by the ’50s and ’60s. Now in their early twenties, Summer Twins play live with an additional guitarist and bassist. Their debut self-titled album will be on Burger Records in January 2012.
