Lately I’ve been been listening, or rather engulfed in the music of the Cocteau Twins. Considering that they were around for over 20 years and I’m just now discovering them still perplexes me. Growing up I was always looking for bands and musicians who brought something different to the table and who were for the most part underground and below the mainstream radar so to speak. Of course I had my favorites who were mainstream, but I enjoyed hunting down bands that had their own direction regardless of what was topping the charts or seemingly “cool”.
How did the Cocteau Twins escape my discover all these years? I don’t know but I’m grateful I found them anyway. Their music is truly timeless and it is no surprise that they were, and still continue to be influential to this day.
