Song Premiere: “Flash Burn” by Twin Rains

Twin Rains is Jay Merrow and Christine Stoesser. The pair met as roommates in 2009 and within weeks were making music together. They were founding members of Make Me Young, a Toronto indie band that released a critically acclaimed album in 2010, and licensed music to Degrassi: The Next Generation. Make Me Young disbanded not long after the release of the album, but Jay and Christine continued writing music together for film and television. They talked endlessly about making another album, but they couldn’t seem to find the inspiration. So, in 2012 they packed up and flew to Vancouver. One year stretched into four, and somewhere between teaching music (Jay guitar, Christine piano) and exploring a newfound passion for spending time in nature, Twin Rains was born.

“‘Flash Burn’ is a sad party song about the fear of being burned in love or friendship,” Christine explains. “I wrote and recorded the first rough version after hearing some bad news about a friend, as a way to work through my emotions. The song has been through several different incarnations, but that opening synth line has been there since day one.”

Twin Rains’ debut album Automatic Hand will be available on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers/streaming services on Friday, November 18th. Look for Twin Rains on tour starting on Vancouver Island on November 3rd.
