Twisted has already been around in one way, shape or form since 2008 when Jon Mohajer started it as a bedroom project. It then turned into a full-fledged band while he attended university in Leeds. After moving back home in 2013, Mohajer started a new line up with some old friends, which brings us to the release of “Utopia”.

Taking influences from the likes of Marked Men and Eddy Current Suppression Ring as well as Parquet Courts and 70s punks like The Buzzcocks, Twisted wrestle their way through 14 tracks on their debut full-length. Unfortunately they do so without offering a lot of variety or catchy hooks, making “Utopia” a mildly entertaining yet not very memorable album.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
