“Twin Sister are a Brooklyn-by-way-of-Long Island quintet that do so much so well. Their songs have a remarkable sense of atmosphere and romanticism. They nod at their heroes-- maybe Stereolab and Bjork, maybe Cocteau Twins or 1980s pop-- without overtly stealing. They seem to know they are capable of great things...” - Pitchfork
The band's self-titled album is the second full length album by the five members of Twin Sister, now known as Mr Twin Sister. Following their debut LP, composed largely in a studio, the band returned to the creative process they had employed on their first two EPs- working individually or in small, shifting groups. Ideas germinated in an environment where experimentation was encouraged. Some bloomed immediately, others matured slowly over the years, the rest demolished and rebuilt dozens of times in an effort to discover their ideal form. Progress was slow, coming in fits and bursts, accommodating the unexpected twists and turns of life.

There was a new depth to the process as well- prior to 2010, when working on their EPs in much the same manner, the band had never before been in a proper studio. Now having spent time in one, they knew better how and when to use it, and were able to combine its benefits with a more methodical songwriting approach for the first time.

We are left with eight songs stretching 38 minutes, something far deeper, darker, and more substantial than anything they have done before. Revolving around themes of self-identity and isolation, the songs stand as a testament to fighting for what you love, breaking down the walls we surround ourselves with, out of the dark and into the light.
In 2014 the married pop music duo Sateen emerged from a cloud of glitter, sharing their message of positivity, love and glamour with all of NYC. The betrothed duo is comprised of drag queen Exquisite, and bio queen, Miss Queen Sateen. Since their formation, the couple have “educated the children” on the art of Feeling Fancy, Treating Yaself, and telling off online haters with their latest music video, Karmas Gonna Get Ya. The music of Sateen is infectiously positive, vocal-centric pop with empowering lyrics that you make you want to dance.

Together, Sateen has perfected the art of swirling and twirling while hosting many events. Working alongside innumerable Icons and Legends of the underground queer NYC scene they have established themselves as an undeniable force. Whether at a large Manhattan fashion party or a small Brooklyn bar, these queens have performed, DJ’ed and sashayed with unfettered aplomb.

Taking inspiration from the house and disco divas of yesteryear, Sateen’s music is nonetheless imbued with the contemporary drag and club culture from whence they emerged. But, don’t get it twisted - despite their pedigree in the underground scene, they strive to make pop music for the ears of everyone!

Sateen’s approach is entirely DIY, and they have plans to independently release a debut EP and a new music video “as soon as possible”. But for now, they are constantly writing, recording, performing and preaching the Sateen lifestyle. After all, Sateen is a lifestyle—it’s about opening your mind, loving yourself, being strong and sexy, and dancing the night away.
