Where do i start with the pompadour bearing musical being George Lewis Jr. Aka Twin Shadow Born In Dominican Republic, Now Based In Brooklyn New York, the purity in these tracks is undeniable. These dream pop serenades are a breath of fresh air straight from the 80s. Kind of a cross between Morrissey and the nu shoegaze acts How To Dress Well or Glasser. Brilliant guitar rifts carrying along the crooning of Lewis’ silk voice, these are bound to have you humming the melodies throughout the day. Seeming to have originated from a cultural time vault, the sound if a mixture of modern and new age production techniques.
Having produced and recorded the entirety his first release and garnering some underground support. he gained enough to have his full length release Production taken over By Grizzly Bears Chris Taylor. The result is a full melodic song that blankets the listener with waves of cold and dark wave rifts. Drawing to mind instantly Echo & the Bunnymen, New Order, and The Smiths, the production adds to the range of the vocals creating a sweet nostalgia. Some pure great feel good vibes and convicted true lyrics are key marks in any great acts, and twin shadow vanquishes both categories. The Track “Slow” is a great ballad jostling between sentimental vocals to soaring belting, it is a true standout and the video is awkwardly awesome, which is the best kind of awkward. check it out and another track below
