Hometown: Twin Falls is producer and songwriter Luke Stidson who records in his Somerset studio.

Style: Luke obviously isn't shy when it comes to being epic. Romancer is an aptly titled beautiful soundscape of layered synths, other worldy sounds and an understated vocal. It feels like a futuristic ballad set aboard a starship spinning through space. Think Mercury Rev, Spiritualized, Flaming Lips...

It's taken from his second full-length record, May All Your Dreams Be Full Of Light, released in May this year.

You need to know: Twin Falls recorded a session at Maida Vale earlier this year including this performance of Romancer

Supported by: Twin Falls has been submitting tracks to BBC Introducing for the last couple of years, with previous track Janie I Will Only Let You Down being played by his local show BBC Introducing in the West back in 2011. Luke has also been supported by BBC 6Music's Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson.
