A barrier is a circumstance or obstacle that keeps people or things apart or prevents communication or progress. A barrier is also used to protect those inside of it from the forces at play beyond the barrier’s borders. This was a concept that Matt Weiner aka TWINS could not get out of his head as he wrote and recorded these songs during the first 4 weeks of the pandemic and self-isolation - easily the greatest barrier that the world has collectively dealt with in his lifetime. In his own words Matt says, "I was determined to keep a shred of sanity intact by losing myself thoroughly in the process of making these songs and taking advantage of the unprecedented amount of free time I found myself with to try and take my craft to new heights. The songs on this EP deal with every thing from dependency on screen time, to people who never had to question their behavior until they could no longer ignore it, to seizing this unique moment of crushed paradigms to build a new world from the ashes that allows everyone to live their lives the way they’d always envisioned for themselves."
