Double Trouble: KEXP’s Video Roundup of Twins in Bands

Twins Kim and Kelley Deal celebrate their 54th birthday today, which got us thinking about twins in bands. It’s no wonder it works so well: researchers have found that twin babies interact in the womb, so they’re collaborating from even before birth. Twins have also been known to exhibit a sensitivity towards the other where they seem to share thoughts and finish each other’s sentences. That must come in handy in the recording studio, right? Inspired by the Deal sisters’ work in The Breeders and The Amps, and impressed with the lack of sibling rivalry it must take to be in a band together, KEXP takes a look at some of our favorite twins in this Video Roundup:

Simone and Amedeo Pace

Tim and Phil Hanseroth
