London post-punk trio bar italia have surprise-released a new EP, The Tw*ts, with Matador. The Tw*ts is in conversation with their previous November 2023 release of their latest album, The Twits. Listen below, followed by the band’s tour dates.

The three freshly released tracks on the EP were written directly after the release of The Twits as intended B-sides to the single “Sounds Like You Had to be There.” A press release says the three tracks “share a similar sonic world to [that single], making for a companion piece to this period of the band’s output.”

The Twits quickly follows Tracey Denim, a new album the band released in May 2023 via Matador (it was the band’s first for the iconic label).

The band features Nina Cristante, Jezmi Tarik Fehmi, and Sam Fenton.
