OUSEBURN album 05/10/18

"Ouseburn promises social commentary, strident synths and stinging pop hooks by the bucket load" - M-Magazine (PRS Magazine), UK
"Jungle drums bearing down on Mordor-esque 80's synth, while frontwoman Bea takes vocalising to a new level [...] This is pretty strong stuff" - Freshonthenet, UK
"Ouseburn is everything a great album should be; dramatic, ambitious, intellectually stimulating and with a message" - Earthly Pleasures, UK
"Ouseburn does a remarkable job at sounding contemporary – and also relevant. With the decline of music venues and the changing face of the music industry itself, it’s refreshing to see a band tackle these issues, but at the same time pull off some very polished pop tunes in the process" - The Electricity Club, UK
"Bursting at the seams with infectious pop melodies, 80’s synths, tribal drums and Bea Garcia’s unique vocals, the album takes you on a journey through the streets of the band’s beloved Newcastle" - NARC Magazine, UK
"Their buoyant engaging sound has its synth elements but is also guitar driven and bristling with energy and the snap crackle pop of a driving indie anthem" - Trust The Doc (Demera Records), UK
"It opens with perhaps the most defiant and inspiring opening line of an album in recent years: “This city is not sleeping / It’s dreaming”"
 - Travellers Tunes, UK  
"We´re fascinated by their electronic sound " - Compact Cheese, Spain
Twist Helix clearly has their own distinctive style and new vision in music creation" - Grotesqualizer
"A masterpiece"
 - Headstuff, UK
Yo Tambien Soy Indie, Spain
