Rising UK stars Ward Thomas (24 year old twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy), release their jubilant new single No Filter (available on all platforms now), taken from their eagerly anticipated forthcoming album Restless Minds out February 1st on WTW Music/Sony Music. The girls will also tour the UK in the new year.
Lyrically the twins have tackled issues close to their hearts on Restless Minds, including pertinent observations on social media, the women’s movement, what ‘the truth’ means in 2018 and mental health. “We couldn’t help but address social media and the subconscious competition it creates,” says Lizzy. “There’s a fake reality that everyone our age is falling for right now. Scroll down, see my page, look at my perfect life!”
Catherine and Lizzy also feature in the BBC Radio 1 documentary Beyond Nashville, presented by Scott Mills, exploring country music’s extraordinary success in the UK charts this year. The doc explores how the genre has changed and grown on both sides of the pond. Along the way Scott speaks to some of the biggest artists on today’s scene including Ward Thomas.
Restless Minds is the follow up to their 2016 No.1 charting major label debut Cartwheels and firmly establishes Ward Thomas as leading exponents of new wave country tinged pop. Restless Minds is available to pre-order now.
They perform at York Barbican on Monday 25th February.
