Ward Thomas (24 year old twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy), have released their jubilant new single Never Know, taken from their forthcoming album Restless Minds – out February 1st

Written by Ward Thomas alongside Rebekah Powell and Jessica Sharman, Never Know, is an arms-aloft, folk pop anthem that they call their ‘ranty song’ and if you listen carefully, secretly features a reversed sample of a dog growl!

Take a listen below…

“Never Know” is a song we have always wanted to write” say the girls; “It’s for anyone who has been rejected in a friendship, relationship or in work. But out of that rejection comes empowerment and a sense of freedom and release which gives you the courage to do what you believe in and be yourself”

Lyrically the twins have tackled issues close to their hearts on new record Restless Minds, including pertinent observations on social media, the women’s movement, what ‘the truth’ means in 2018 and mental health. “We couldn’t help but address social media and the subconscious competition it creates,” says Lizzy. “There’s a fake reality that everyone our age is falling for right now. Scroll down, see my page, look at my perfect life!”
