Twin Peaks Share New Song “Oh Mama”

Chicago-based five-piece Twin Peaks are releasing a new album, Lookout Low, this Friday (September 13) via Grand Jury. Now they have shared another song from the album, "Oh Mama," via a video for the track. Alec Basse and Max Moore directed the video and the song is the album's final pre-release single. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

The band's Clay Frankel leads the song and had this to say about it in a press release: "'Oh Mama' is a song about the moon and lunacy. We did three takes and used the first. I had a loose plan for the lyrics. Some of them I made up as I went along. For the video we made a swamp bar. We hit a few costume shops in Chicago and got some stuff. We made things blue and sometimes gold and we hope you enjoy it."

Previously Twin Peaks shared Lookout Low's first single, "Dance Through It," via a video for the track (it was one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared another song from the album, "Ferry Song," which had a bit of a '60s vibe and was fittingly accompanied by a visual featuring vintage footage of cities and ferries.

Lookout Low is the follow-up to 2016's full-length Down In Heaven and 2017's singles series and compilation Sweet '17 Singles. Ethan Johns (Paul McCartney, U2) produced the album, which was recorded at the Monnow Valley studio in Wales. The band consists of guitarists Cadien Lake James and Clay Frankel, bassist Jack Dolan, multi-instrumentalist Colin Croom, and drummer Connor Brodner. OHMME's Macie Stewart and Sima Cunningham also contributed to seven tracks on the album.

A previous press release described the new album like this: "Where their last LP, 2016's Down In Heaven, and 2017's Sweet '17 Singles compilation were adventurous and compelling updates on their youthfully raucous formula, their fourth album, Lookout Low feels like a total revolution. Their most deliberate and seamless record yet, the album is a collaborative triumph, propelled forward by Twin Peak's near-decade-long bond."
