Single Twin, aka former Deloris front man Marcus Teague, is about to launch his debut album entitled, wait for it, Marcus Teague. It was was recorded and mixed by Teague himself over a period of five or six years, in his home using Garageband and a single Rode NT-1000 microphone.

As he explains: “Single Twin was the name for the thing I was when I was recording songs at home, away from my band Deloris; who were a louder, more democratic concern throughout its 4 album/ten year lifespan. Away from anyone else’s ears, Single Twin songs were small, tediously recorded on the Garageband program through the only microphone I own. While Deloris were hatching singles and planning things and setting up in studios and running out of money and snatching defeat from the jaws of victory I would give away Single Twin stuff on CDRs with home-printed artwork. With the demise of Deloris in 2008, I set about making Single Twin exist properly. “

The album explores the characters in the songs, the character of the solo artist, the solo artist as Single Twin, Marcus Teague on television (Channel 10’s Neighbours) and Marcus Teague who recorded and mixed these songs in a room at home over the last six years or so on one particular eMac in the universe. Under the solo alias Single Twin, Marcus Teague and band now take his self-titled debut album on the road.
