by Manzo



Featuring an impassioned vocal performance by Harrison Nicol with deeply expressive violin by Richard Taylor, Twist explores and tries to make sense of seemingly insignificant events in life that brought two people together.

“seeing one of our crew welling up, then openly weeping every time we played the master, got me going too. There we were, looking at each other, wiping away the years, infused, and loving every second of it”. - Alan Hodgetts Songwriter & Producer.

Released ahead of Manzo’s 11 track album Attachment and 4 track companion EP Beatniks on Toast on 26 July, this song truly is at the very heart and soul of the year-long recording project.


My love, ever wondered what brought us here?
All the twists and turns
Could have taken us anywhere
Here and there, unaware
And yet,

Love, there’s no way this was just some random thing
What were the odds?
A billion to one or more
No scientist, no formula could explain

Love, all I know is life was unravelling
All I held dear gone
I was just hanging on
No up or down, on shifting sands
And now,

Love, let's just call this a miracle
We’ll never really know
My theory is
Some higher being, on the wing, determining

Love, ever wondered what brought us here?
All the twists and turns
All the twists and turns
