  • about It’s been a heavy year for all sorts of reasons, not just for us, but also for our friends and family. This song is for them. Ah, christmas… lyrics It's been the year from hell
    I'm not doing so well
    I've been thinking of throwing in the towel
    Right now

    It's been one hell of a ride
    Felt like nobody was on my side
    I felt so lonely
    Like the days dragged on and on
    But I'm still holding on

    'Coz up ahead I'll feel fine
    Around about Christmas time
    That's when I kiss the year goodbye

    All year long I've felt out of place
    Every door was shut in my face
    And all my loved ones have been having a hard time, too
    What about you?

    I put my heart on the line
    But it turns out it's only been a waste of my time
    I've been crying, crying myself to sleep
    But tears are cheap

    It's been the year to forget
    It's been the worst one yet
    Oh I wonder what next year's gonna' be
    Please be good to me credits released July 12, 2015

    Xani Kolac (violin/vocals) and Mark Leahy (drums) from The Twoks have broken up. 

    The Twoks are a duo with an undeniable on-stage chemistry. That happens when you get up to have muesli together every morning and argue about whose turn it is to empty the dishwasher. But by the end of 2015, Xani and Mark decided to call it quits. The Twoks would go on, but their romantic relationship was over.

    It is now 2017. Mark looks much better and Xani doesn’t bite her fingernails quite as much. Despite all the tinder dating, the awkward banter and the tears cried, The Twoks are more back together than ever before. The future is bright and the music is brighter.

    The Twoks have spent the past twelve months working together on their much-awaited new EP featuring four tracks written post-split. The songs are deeply personal, but written collaboratively. You might even say it’s a bit awkward.

    From the debris of a crumbling relationship, The Twoks emerged. With an East Coast tour up ahead, new music and a new show, audiences can expect ABBA covers, awkward stories and that special glow every one gets when they’re newly single. 

    The Twoks are a Melbourne-based drums and violin duo, featuring Xani Kolac and Mark Leahy. The duo play epic, layered instrumentals and danceable pop songs using live looping and electronic effects pedals. The Twoks have toured to NYC, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Canada and have performed at The Falls Festival, DARK MOFO, St Kilda Festival, Melbourne Festival and at pubs and clubs across Australia.
