“Stupid shiny Volvo owner, I’m so glad to see you here.”
This week we saw what happened when Supernatural and Twilight combined. It was amazing, let’s face it. Yet, this wasn’t the first time Twilight fused with another one of my favorite things. If I told you that there was a band – an awesome band – that makes music dedicated to the Twilight world, what would you say? Well, if you’re not a TwiHard, you’d probably say I was insane. If you’re a Potter fan, you’d probably say Wizard Rock is better. However, if you are a TwiHard, you know I’m talking about The Mitch Hansen Band.
A little over two years ago, I had a newly found obsession in a book series. I was just starting down the Twi road when I heard Number 3. Hearing The Mitch Hansen Band was like completing the circle. There was music to companion the book series. It made sense and it was awesome. When you’re so invested in a series, having a musical reference heightens the reading experience. It made me love the series even more. You know what I’m talking about, Potter fans.
Whether or not you’re a twifan, there is no denying that The Mitch Hansen Band takes their craft seriously. They make amazing music, if it’s about Twilight or not (It’s a choice. Don’t judge). In 2007, their debut album Twilight Hour was released. The all acoustic album focused on the first three books of the series. Songs like Lullaby and A World Without You immediately made TwiHard’s hearts pitter-patter. A mostly literal interpretation of the series, Twilight Hour respectfully paid homage to our favorite characters. One year later, Endless Day came out. Backed with a full band and increased rock sound, The Mitch Hansen Band brought back the songs we loved with some new enhancements.
