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.

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.

Twin Shadow is the stage name of American musician George Lewis Jr who allegedly drew inspiration for this album from a bike accident in Boston. Music lovers everywhere should exhort Mr Lewis to be far more careful for in "Confess" he has produced an album of 80s inspired synth rock, soul and funk which does dabble in retro but comes out sounding surprisingly fresh and squeaky clean. Lewis operates in a territory on "Confess" which has been a graveyard for some other bands. Think of the horrible Killers album "Day and Age" where Brandon Flowers caught a massive musical cold. That said more recently other artists have been more successful in plundering the legacy of Human League, Heaven 17, OMD, Gary Numan and Visage. Dan Bejar's "Destroyer" produced the brilliant "Kaputt" last year (albeit with a very large tongue in their cheek) and Twin Shadow follows from that roaring success.

True there is more than a nod here to Prince who also rode that phase for the production of massive slabs of synth inspired funk that tested your audio equipment with the persistence of electronic oscillators and stinging guitar solo's . Check out the huge wall of sound that is "You call me on" and Lewis captures the essence of what made the Purple one so special. Big choruses interspersed with pounding hooks are the order of the day and this album deserves to be played across Europe in summer festivals. The glorious ballad "The One" drifts along at perfect pace and when Lewis poetically sings "dance me round the room and lie to me" in "I dont care" your tempted to dust down the old dancing pumps and skip the light fantastic. On "Five Seconds" Lewis borrows that huge backdrop which TV on the Radio employed on their brilliant song "Wolf like me" although he not quite in their class.
