The Twoks – Take It Slowly


If you loved The Twoks cute little tune ’240 Volts‘, then you are bound to also love the Melbourne duos more recent song ‘Take It Slowly‘.

‘Take It Slowly’ is a slow, enchanting love song that manages to broach the subject very delicately. Xani Kolac’s voice is again so soft and tender, conveying such warmth to the music and making you feel as though you have actually shared the experience together. The slow plucking of the guitars shows the the fragility of those story, whilst the violins are such a delightful and almost cheery way to end a pretty deep song.

Although more melancholy that ’240 Volts’, ‘Take It Slowly’ is another fantastic listen provided by The Twoks.


The Twoks – 240 Volts


Living in a house with atrocious electrics, I have blown numerous things up in the previous year. The good news is that this funky little duo from Melbourne called The Twoks have written a heartwarming song to document the ‘240 Volts‘ that power each 3 pronged plug.

’240 Volts’ not only has amusing lyrics, but is a pretty cool and catchy listen. There is so much to love about this song. Firstly, I love the vocals by Xani Kolac, which manage to create this essence of cuteness but without overstepping the mark and being sickly sweet. There is also so much clever layering of instruments, which makes its easy to think there is more that two people responsible for the sounds. The drums are steady and rise in the right places, but it is the catchy high pitched synth overlay that really grabs you. Its a tune with a simple message, constructed well and results in a beautiful warm song, you cannot help but enjoy.

The Twoks are a really cool little band that I am glad I stumbled across. I hope you enjoy them and their cute tunes just as much.
