Twenty One Pilots

Post by MediumTex » Fri Aug 26, 2016 5:11 pm

Any other Twenty One Pilots fans here?

I think that their following is primarily teenage girls, but they got their hooks in me recently and I find their music fascinating and hard to stop listening to.

One of the interesting things about their work is the range of their sound. They seemingly touch every pop genre from the last 20 years more or less effortlessly.

"Heavy Dirty Soul" live: https://youtu.be/szE3DTbtqw8

"Migraine" in studio: https://youtu.be/W29uD5Gf5Fc

"Hometown" audio from album: https://youtu.be/pJtlLzsDICo (7 million views, 44,000 likes, 400 dislikes, probably my favorite song so far)

"Ode to Sleep" live: https://youtu.be/dQx7xpPa94Q

Yes, me as well and just recently started listening to them more frequently.
First heard on Live 105, Bay Area.
Funniest thing ever...Livey, a 105 year old English woman who is their "mascot" was asked to announce the band on the radio this morning.

That's great.

They're coming to town in February 2017 and I asked my daughter if she wanted to go with me to see them. She said yes. The conversation felt sort of backward, but I'm glad I've got someone to go with (wife isn't quite down with the Skeleton Clique...at least not yet). :)

I had not heard of them. Listened to the 4 songs. Hometown is not bad. The others would give me a migraine ;) I'm old!

This one will probably hurt Mountaineer's ears, but I think it rocks.
