[new]: Twin Shadow – To The Top

By Will Oliver, April 23rd 2014

Twin Shadow

Twin Shadow has hit back with a new song called “To The Top.” It’s a 80s power-ballad of sorts, something that would have been a pretty appropriate fit on the Donnie Darko soundtrack. It’s a major tune, getting more and more powerful with ever listen.

He recorded the song with Wynne Bennet at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Cemetary & Studio Zapata Zabala. The song came with the following message from George Lewis Jr. (Twin Shadow) himself:

What is it when you realize that someone isn’t right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell.

It’s not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness…We just want to say “wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again.

Enjoy it below.

Twin Shadow - There Is A light That Never Goes Out

Twin Shadow has been doing plenty of various classic song covers with his UNDER THE CVRS series. He teamed up with Rookie Mag for a special Valentine’s Day gift to the world. He offered up a special cover of The Smith’s legendary “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” with featured vocals from Samantha Urbani of the band Friends.

They offer a cover that’s more-so electronic/r&b flavored but still captures the essence of the classic song. There’s also a clever ending to the song that fans of the song will appreciate.

Twin Show | Lou Reed Cover

With the passing of Lou Reed, the touching covers and tributes keep coming in. We saw Arctic Monkeys cover “Walk On The Wild Side” and Neil Young, Elvis Costello, My Morning Jacket, and others, came together to cover The Velvet Underground.

Now we can add Twin Shadow to the list of artists playing tribute to the late, great, Lou Reed. He uploaded a touching cover of Reed’s “Perfect Day.” It’s a simple cover, but does all the job, capturing all the emotion that so many are feeling with Reed’s passing.

[new]: Twin Shadow – Five Seconds

By Will Oliver, May 1st 2012

Twin Shadow, a.k.a. George Lewis Jr. is back with a new song called “Five Seconds”. The 80s themed song could have fit snugly in the Drive soundtrack. It’s from his new album, Confess, coming out via 4AD on July 10.

A great deal of inspiration came from LA motercycle rides. You can sort of hear that with “Five Seconds”. Download it below.

Twin Shadow is hard at work at a new album that should be released sometime in 2012. To keep fans at ease, he released his reworking of Baggare’s very 1980’s song, “Circus Is Gone”.
