Sunken is the first studio album by Twin Peaks, released on July 9, 2013, on Autumn Tone Records. The album was recorded in James’ basement using "a crappy iMac from 2004, a broken digital mixer, and a digital recording studio from the '90s. The title of the album comes from Sunken Gardens Park, a park in Chicago where the band used to drink as teenagers.
The Chicago quartet Twin Peaks deserve a better, more imaginative name, because they have made a very good album in a style- sloppy, d rock- where "pretty good" is an easy bar to clear and anything above that formidably harder. Power pop and bar rock bands work from a sort of creative commons of riffs and bass lines: There's the "Shake Some Action", the "Lust for Life", the "American Girl". You can hear a few of these old chestnuts echoing around in Sunken, Twin Peaks' newly re-released mini-LP.
Last year, this gang of 19 year-olds decided to quit college and reunite their band. We witnessed them tearing it up at Hype Hotel a few months ago, and are now excited to be streaming their debut album, which is being released on Aquarium Drunkard's record label, Autumn Tone.

Sunken is an amalgamation of all kinds of contradictions: carefree, yet melancholy; light-hearted and fun, yet harsh and raw. Perhaps it was this element to the music that appealed to my conflicting emotions at the time I first listened to it. I found myself connecting to the singer’s lashing out in desperation, and empowered by his callous rejection of pain
