Biography

“A lot of Confess is about sacrificing part of your life to something you love to do,” says George Lewis Jr., the nom de plume of Brooklyn indie pop sensation Twin Shadow. “Love and commitment may not be part of my life at this point. So a lot of this record is about my relationships with people, and dealing with the sacrifices I’ve made.”

Product Description

Product Description

Twin Shadow, the creative moniker of George Lewis Jr., will release his second album, Confess, on July 9th. Self-produced and with mixing duties handled by Michael H. Brauer (Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney), the follow-up to 2010 s Forget ( Impressive The Sunday Times 4 star) finds Lewis Jr. doing what he does best; remembering and reinventing, and fashioning a soundtrack which sounds refreshingly and distinctly modern.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable 10 July 2012
By Kenneth
Format:Audio CD
I'm not the biggest fan of modern pop music i generally find it banal, unsophisticated and soulless. The most recent obsession pop producers have with euro dance beats and extremely annoying auto tune makes me want throw my radio through the window if i should happen to accidently turn the dial the wrong way. There are some musicians who seem to be trying to restore some credibility to the genre though, the only problem is their largely unknown by mass consumers. Twin shadow is one of these artists that i think does have the ability to reach a larger audience and hopefully his stellar new album confess might help him become a star (lord knows we could do with someone to take some attention away from the irratating likes of Justin bieber).

Confess is riddled with the same retro 80's smoothness that his excellent debut Forget had, however it features a much stronger emphasis on the poppier elements of this style, with the production featuring less reverb and the instrumentation sounding louder, more melodic and direct. "Golden Light" opens the album brillaintly with George Lewis Jr delivering a staggering vocal perfomance to bombasticly smooth 80's style synths and drum machines. Lyrically it's filled with sharp, bitter declarations of apathy towards what one can only assume was a previous love interest.

If there's any justice in the world lead single "Five Seconds" will be blasting out of every speaker in nightclubs for years to come; it's bouncy, buoyant, full of energy and shamelessly catchy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Boys Will Be Boys 16 July 2012
By Gannon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
In today's world of aquacrunk, driftstep and gothgaze it's fairly rare that someone invokes the simple new-wave pop of The Police, but Dominican Republic-born George Lewis Junior notably does just that on "Run My Heart", running it past some classic Springsteen balladeering and mid-distance indie jangles to boot. Amid repeats of "Just a boy / Just a girl" it's clear that Lewis has nevertheless stuck to the same themes of sex and mishandling relationships that dominated his wistful, sometimes aptly indistinct debut Forget.

Confess, on the other hand, is much surer of itself now that Lewis has cast himself as some leather-clad troublemaker - there's little chance however of him going that extra step and becoming the leader of the pack because the allure of the 80s still hangs so heavily over his every move that it's like he's bathed in Paco Rabanne. Undisputed album highlight, "Five Seconds" is, for example, pure unabashed pop that showcases punchy bass tempos pilfered from David Lynch, perfect synth hooks, popping drum sequences and more guitars ripped from the Boss.

There are echoes too of that diminutive lothario Prince in the satin smoothness of "You Call Me On" and "Beg For The Night" is all about a cruising bassline and stadium-sized drum blasts over which laser effects latterly play off against soaring guitar solos. Sweeping bass synths scan the nether regions of "Patient" like a searchlight as Lewis states that "Boys will be boys", dressing the fact with harsh snares and a peppering of guitar funk.

4.0 out of 5 stars Potpourri of pop songs rooted in 80s retro 10 Oct 2012
By Avg Joe
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another fine offering delivered by Twin Shadow. Reminds this reviewer of AR Kane, Psychedelic Furs and The The in terms of glossy layered production, mechanised beats and synths, and lush vocals dishing out libido-led lyrics; throw in some Peter Gabriel theatricality. There's a knowing, yet unabashed cheesiness to the arrangements here. Highlights: 'golden light' and 'beg for the night.' It's not for everyone, but builds on the first LP 'Forget' and commits more to the 80s vibe and formulae experimented on there. If you liked that, this one will feel at once familiar and bolder. Probably best to check the Amazon US site, and play the samples before you buy.
