About The Typewriters:

The Typewriters - 'Kickflip Backflip'

"The Typewriters is a band without genre, never know what to expect next out of us because I can guarantee it ain't gonna be like something we've put out before. Experimentation is the name of the game, so much more can be done with music that just really doesn't get touched upon. I'd like to be a stepping stone to influence a future generation of musicians. The Typewriters is primarily more rock-oriented, however, that does not leave out room for a little boundary-breaking in established genres and blending unique soundscapes together. There's always a concept behind our projects.

This phonk ep going strong off numerology, the focused number on this one is 7. The project more than anything was a tool to teach myself how to produce, mix and master better, so the next album that comes out will be at a significantly higher standard than anything else previously released. When The Typewriters started, we mainly just did noise, shitposts and parodies on obscure genres. While the humour behind that hasn't left this group, the goal is to make stuff people would actually want to listen to, so more recent endeavours have been more focused and grounded."
