James Gray of War Twins
“I've been really impressed by the versatility of the Naturally Custom sticks; they have the perfect weight and feel to express subtleties, they have a great sound of their own, and they can take a beating when it comes time for all-out-rude dynamic expression.” - James Gray | War Twins
"For those apt to bop a little harder than the average indie showgoer, Little War Twins serves as a sanctuary." - Metroland
Brown's unique vocals and hypnotic guitar swells merge with James' unapologetic percussion and electronic samples - creating a distinctly new recipe for power pop. Their first tour in 2013 took them to over eighty cities, performing over 170 shows nationwide, and in 2014 they have begun another six month journey across the states.
