Sorry share new EP Twixtustwain and release 2017 mixtapes Home Demo / NS Vol I. & II digitally

North London’s Sorry have today shared their brand new EP Twixtustwain alongside the official digital release of their two 2017 mixtapes Home Demo/ns Vol I. and Home Demo/ns Vol. II, reworked and available across streaming platforms for the very first time. Sorry have also shared the videos for EP tracks ‘Don’t Be Scared’, ‘Things To Hold Onto’, and ‘Favourite’ created by Flasha Prod. (Sorry’s own Asha Lorenz and longtime collaborator Flo Webb) completing a full audio-visual compliment which also includes the previously released ‘Cigarette Packet’ and ‘Separate’. Their first new project since the release of sensational debut album 925 on Domino last year, the Twixtustwain EP finds the band delving back into a more experimental, cut-and-paste electronic palette all the while still coursing with their signature gnarled sensitivity.

Earlier this month, Sorry released two Twixtustwain cuts - ‘Cigarette Packet’ and ‘Separate’ - co-produced with James Dring (Gorillaz, Jamie T, Nilüfer Yanya) which were praised by the likes of CLASH, DIY, Dork, The FADER, The Line Of Best Fit, The New York Times, NME, Stereogum, and more. Earlier this year Sorry released their live LP A Night At The Windmill - captured during their socially distanced show at the venue last year - as a Bandcamp exclusive limited to 500 pressings, with all proceeds going to The Windmill in Brixton.

Comprised of best friends and co-conspirators Asha Lorenz and Louis O’Bryen, joined by drummer Lincoln Barrett, multi-instrumentalist Campbell Baum, and new member Marco Pini on electronics,  Sorry emerged from a thriving scene of bands in London, unveiling a series of mixtapes, sporadic singles and generally experimenting with the disparate tastes and sounds that would eventually give their debut album its distinctively modern and apocalyptic sound. Released in March 2020, 925 earned a string of perfect review scores, national radio playlistings, global media profiles - and was tipped in end of year lists and coverage by DIY, Dork, The Forty Five, Gigwise, The Guardian, Loud And Quiet, Mojo, NME, and more, capping off Sorry’s remarkable rise and cementing their status as one of the most vital and relentlessly creative new British bands of the moment.

Speaking about the new EP, Sorry said, “"The Twixtustwain songs, shapes and forms are more odd and misshaped to fit around the mantra type lyrical lines. They are smaller ideas that we wanted to explore and put out between albums to follow from the Home Demo/ns. Then we've wanted Home Demons up for a while too, so more people can enjoy them now. They also show the songs / ideas that developed into 925."

With recent personal influences as wide ranging as Micachu and the Shapes, Cindy Lee and Stevie Moore to Arca’s Stretch 2, Sorry’s experimental and holistic approach marks them out as a thoroughly 21st century band; from their open-minded approach to genre to their creativity allowing them to self-produce the music and direct accompanying videos. Qualities more present than ever before at the start of this next exciting chapter.
