"A gorgeously jangly Paisley Underground rock masterpiece." - New York Music Daily, Jan. 2016
Even Twice
Even Twice
Even Twice has been playing its brand of- as one DJ put it -"ceiling tile rattling music" for the past three years. Based in New York, they've also made multiple trips to Boston, Philadelphia, the Midwest and beyond. Said one reviewer on their live set; " Even twice. Bass and drums, two vocals...The Jam meets King Crimson...over the top, but kicks ass." The term "Prog/punk" has also been used to describe their two full length albums, both of have which garnered great press in various magazines:

"...shows the possibilities of bass guitar as lead instrument and throws in Alt rock with a New York, new wave element that make Even Twice add up to much more than a novelty act." -Power Play Magazine

"...listening to the many shapes pulled off on their respective elements, these boys seem to not see themselves up against any limit...punk rhythms are an engine to most of the uptempo cuts, but a strain of Thin Lizzy element fills the album's best, and gives the album it's bounce." - Metalville

" Even Twice explore new musical ground that has not been seen or heard in these parts before. Vocally, the band is potent and convincing, while the underlying music is both stark and driving. Both Hait and O'Shea are excellent players, with an eye (and ear) for the sublime."- Metronome magazine

"Top five editor's pick"- Performer magazine.

Recently, Even Twice has appeared on two compilations from New York based label Factoryfast records, and are one of the most requested artists on the label, receiving extensive airplay on such internet radio stations as Boston rock Radio, Rodent hour (Brooklyn), Open the door radio (Colorado), ISX radio (Windsor Canada), and Dr Bones new music Saturday (London Ontario, Canada). with almost 100 shows under their belt, Even Twice is poised to bring their sound to an ever widening audience.
