Happy Friday Earthlings,
One of our most favorite bands that emerged in the last few years is Brooklyn’s Twin Shadow. George Lewis Jr. debuted the flawless album Forget in 2010 (produced by Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear) to much critical acclaim. Once he assembled a touring band, Twin Shadow was able to take the album to new heights during live shows throughout 2011. George’s well written 80’s alt pop tunes are dipped in Shoegaze and New Wave stylings ala The Smiths meets The Dears. Here is the first video single “5 Seconds” off of their new album Confess which hits cyberstores July 10th. Directed by Keith Musil, the short film is based on the novel “Night of the Silver Sun” written by George Lewis Jr. and Eric Green. It has a modernized take on misunderstood rebels similar to the classic biker film Easy Rider. Let us know if you dig it as much as we do!
