Twin Shadow (AKA George Lewis Jr.) has announced the upcoming arrival of his sophomore LP, Confess, with a bang. “Five Seconds,” the new record’s lead single, features Twin Shadow’s signature synth-driven rock and is as sharp as George’s perfectly styled hair. Sweeping synth swaths and steady racing drums serve as the backdrop for interjections of guitar riffs evocative of the new wave and post punk movements. In the same way that made Twin Shadow’s 2010 debut LP Forget pure magic, the 1980’s based sonic palate is familiar, but there is something about George’s delivery that is uniquely his own… and uniquely rad.
Grab Confess on July 10th at 4AD. Listen to and download “Five Seconds” below for free.
