Melbourne pop foursome Twerps are back with their second album Range Anxiety, out now on 12" LP + CD via Chapter Music + Merge Records.

Formed in late 2008, Twerps enjoyed immediate success, releasing a series of vinyl singles and cassettes on labels around the world. Their 2011 self-titled debut album was recorded with producer Jack Farley at Head Gap, and saw them heralded as "the best new band in Australia" by Uncut Magazine.

The title of Twerps second full-length album, also recorded with Jack Farley, refers to a debilitating fear of running out of gas—both literally and metaphysically. As singer-guitarist Julia McFarlane explains; The title Range Anxiety is both descriptive and comic. The album at times feels like it was built on uncertainties; some purely practical and some emotional obstacles were present around the start of writing.

Twerps are a band that has always worked and thrived on a precarious balance of moods and cooperation. An open-minded approach that led to improvisations that sound perfectly planned: singer-guitarist Martin Frawley tricking Julia into believing I Dont Mind is about a bank heist, just to see what she would come up with; Martin turning a hangover into a story about being in a difficult relationship with Back to You; and the call-and-response of Adrenaline that advocates for the enticing oblivion of obsession.

Range Anxiety is a testament to the creativity and vitality Twerps bring to their music, At first listen, nods to The Go-Betweens and the bands beloved Flying Nun influences are clear, but upon closer examination, Twerps expand into a sound uniquely their own.
