The Twang

The Twang are an baggy-influenced indie rock band from Birmingham, England. The band garnered national acclaim when the influential NME magazine produced an article on music acts (which also featured fellow Midlanders Ripchord and The Enemy) in the West Midlands, and has led to band coming second in the BBC News website's Sound of 2007 poll.

The band was formed in Quinton, Birmingham by Phil Etheridge and Jon Watkin. They are signed to the B-Unique label, home to Kaiser Chiefs, The Automatic and The Ordinary Boys. The band won the Phillip Hall Radar Award at the 2007 NME Awards.

The band's debut single, "Wide Awake", will be released March 19, 2007, with an album set to follow later this year. The album is being produced by long term collaborator Gavin Monaghan, at The Magic Garden studio, Wolverhampton, assisted by Gazz Rogers. Highly Recommended!
