Growing up in the Australian regional centre of Ballarat Victoria, James Toohey always knew that to evolve as an artist, he would have to explore the world on the grandest of stages. That urge to find the artist within himself led to a journey of self-discovery overseas and a stay at one of the most diverse musical hot spots in the UK; Bristol.
Drinking from the rich cultural heritage that only Bristol can offer, James returned to Australia with an abundance of inspirations and formed Twin Flowers. Setting himself up in the cultural epicentre of Melbourne, he went about developing a sound that is uniquely his own. Influenced by Radiohead, Deerhunter and LCD Soundsystem, he combines dreamy synths, epic guitars, and a driving rhythm section into a wall of sound that invites the listener to escape within.
