Twist Helix


Euphoric, electronic-alt-pop trio Twist Helix make accessible poignant lyrical themes exploring loss of community, gentrification and urban renewal. The bands 2018 album Ouseburn (Out via Paul Back Music, Spain) has won praise for its joyous and widescreen, synth-pop take on the English North.

Releases taken from the album have been championed by PRS for Music’s M-Magazine, The Vinyl District, FAME, The Electricity Club, Electronic North, Brutal Resonance, mystic sons, POPMUZIK.Se, The, Get in her Ears, Little Indie Blogs and the band have found support on Amazing Radio Worldwide, BBC introducing and Radio 3 (Spain).

Their live show is delivered with a compelling urgency, by front woman and lead synth player Bea Garcia as the band dramatically re-imagine the cityscape of their home Newcastle-Upon- Tyne, blurring the boundaries between creation and destruction, decline and redemption, hope and despair.

“We’ve had a busy 12 months touring to promote the release of our latest album Ouseburn.  However, the time on the road has made it difficult to find opportunities to create new musical works together (especially in light of the closure of our rehearsal space the Little Buildings). Time together in a well-equipped creative space, is a real luxury so we’re looking forward to having access to the Sage’s facilities this summer to get the ball rolling on album 3.”
