Lvl Live Episode 2: “Horseblood” by TWEN Live at Heartwood Soundstage

Words by: Ian Maikisch

Here is the long awaited second episode of Lvl Live! For this episode we decided to give you all something very special. All the way from Nashville, Tennessee is the incredible band, TWEN.

We not only present an amazing band for this session but we filmed the band in the local venue/soundstage/recording studio, Heartwood Soundstage.

TWEN’s loud, powerful and beautiful sound filled the hardwood room at Heartwood. The combination of the fog machine, which filled the room like the smoke from whatever canon this band just exploded from, coupled with some creative light placement the band looked mythical. Blues, greens and purples bounced in front, behind and all around them as they blessed our camera crew with one of the best sessions this site has ever had the privilege to record.

TWEN is one of those bands that fully captures you into their songs and their spacey soundscape. One of those bands that when they finish a song, you let out a large sigh and try to regain your grip on the world around you. The melodic vocal melodies act as a sweet-and-soft cloud wisping you through a journey in your mind. The distorted guitar and low rubble of the bass keeping you firmly grounded as you take this adventure. The drums finally gives you the overwhelming feeling to dance.

We pulled out all the stops for this one guys and we hope you enjoy watching this video as much as we enjoyed making it for you.


TWEN is going back on the road soon so if they are coming to a town near you, go see them! You won’t want to miss out on what this band is like to see live.
