Twin Shadow – Five Seconds

July 2, 2012

George Lewis Jr.’s brand of 80’s pastiche never feels cheap — as if it is relying on the successful sonic tropes of an in vogue hip period of culture — and that’s because, for Twin Shadow, the genre is merely a means to an end rather than the end itself. “Five Seconds” and its crazy music video are, again, retro creations that are certainly evocative of the 80’s zeitgeist, but Lewis Jr. is so fluent in this generic dialect that you barely notice that you’ve been transported back a few decades. New album Confess is out July 10th.
