After playing in bands together throughout their teenage years on Long Island, the five members of Mr Twin Sister coalesced in 2008 under the name Twin Sister, releasing two EPs - Vampires with Dreaming Kids in 2008, and Color Your Life in 2010 - to significant critical acclaim. The band signed to Domino Records for their debut LP, In Heaven, released in 2011, and in 2012 their song “Meet the Frownies” was sampled by Kendrick Lamar and Dr Dre on “The Recipe,” from Kendrick’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city. In 2013 lead singer Andrea Estella was cast in the Veronica Mars movie, with two songs by the band featured on the soundtrack. Having left Domino and changed the name to Mr Twin Sister in response to a legal threat, the band self-released Mr Twin Sister in 2014, which was recognized as one of the best albums of the year by Pitchfork, New York Magazine, Time Magazine, Gorilla vs Bear, Huffington Post, and many others.
