Twist Helix - Alternative Live Act in Newcastle Upon Tyne

Twist Helix Short Info

Fronted by the unimitable Bea Garcia ("Standout Vocals" – NARC Magazine, 2015), Twist Helix are an electronic alt-pop group based in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Having launched their debut single "Decade" (“an indie-pop gem” Alternative Tracks) in a SOLD OUT concert at The Mining Institute in January 2016, the group completed their first European tour dates (including dates in London and Madrid) promoting their 2016 indie-concept album Manifesto; which has been described as "a thrill of intelligent synth pop"- NARC Magazine.

Having played 47 live shows in 2016 and performing alongside national and international bands like Everything Everything, BBC6 favourites Samaris and the Canadian duo Vogue Dots, 2017 promises to be a bright year for Twist Helix.

In January 2017 the group announced their new single "Pulse" with the track premiering on Little Indie Blogs. The success of this track led to a second UK & European tour of 20 dates in the first half of 2017 which included Main Stage performances at Alacant Desperta Festival in Alicante (Spain) and at the prestigious Evolution Emerging Festival in Newcastle supporting BBC1 favourite Lulu James at The Cluny Main Stage.

After the release of their third single "Little Buildings" (22/07/17) at their first ever festival headline set at the Northern Electric Festival, Twist Helix have amassed reviews from all over the world and the track was featured on the reputable Spanish indie blog El Mundo de Tulsa, their biggest one yet.

Known for their intelligent narrative driven synth-pop, they have also attracted attention from the likes of the BBC, Radio Cadena Ser (Spain), The Revue (Canada), The Most Radicalist, Fringe Music Fix, Electronic North and Born Music amongst others.

Twist Helix have featured prominently on the UK festival circuit (Solfest, Evolution Emerging, Worcester Music Festival, Stepping Stones, VW Leeds, Richmond Live, Northern Electric and PandoraFest amongst others) gaining a reputation for their “dramatic and joyous" live shows (NE:MM) and have since been nominated for a UBEAT TV award (Best Alternative Act).

"This three piece band produce thought-provoking female fronted electropop that is so engaging that we fell in love with as soon as heard it" – Electronic North, UK

“'Pulse' is the kind of song you can dive into and become immersed in the depths of its dark layers. It is, in a word, mesmerizing" – The Revue, Canada

"Dramatic verses... massive choruses... euphoric sound" - Born Music, UK

"Something that is epic, huge sounding and has a lot going on. This is seriously good" - Local Sound Focus, UK

"PULSE is akin to Depeche Mode‘s earlier tinkering with the darkside, Bea Garcia Cisneros’ vocals are the real deal Dave Gahan gone bad and possibly never coming back, accompanied only by maidens Siouxsie Sioux and Dolores O’Riordan" – Deadly Music!

"A stylish and intense effort, 'Little Buildings' gives us a glimpse of a band that is full of energy, emotion, and talent" – 24ourmusic, Canada

"It’s hard to ignore the larger than life sound of Twist Helix" – Words For Music, UK
