The Twoks are Xani Kolac (electric violin/vocals) and Mark Leahy (drums). The Melbourne-based duo have been making violin and drums dance music together for the past four years. With influences ranging from Sigur Ros, Kate Bush, Phoenix, Leonard Cohen to Pat Benatar, this duo is an eclectic mix of dark and bright. The Twoks have played St Kilda Festival (MEL), DARK MOFO (TAS), The Falls Festival (Byron Bay), Edinburgh Fringe Festival (UK), Woodford Folk Festival (QLD), Port Fairy Folk Festival and a stack of other gigs, clubs, parties and cities. Recently, The Twoks opened for Clare Bowditch and Adalita’s “Winter Secrets Tour” as well as for 2Cellos at The Palais. The pair have released a bunch of recordings, including an LP of half an hour’s worth of instrumental improvisations. The duo have worked with producers, Tony Buchen (The Preatures, Andy Bull) and Andy Baldwin (The Cat Empire, Haerts) and Xani Kolac was nominated for the AUReview award for Best Live Instrumentalist in 2014.
