Twin Shadow

We've covered Twin Sister, Twin Tigers, and yes, now - Twin Shadow. We're not doing this to be cheeky here. All three bands are good! Twin Shadow is really just a dude: George Lewis Jr. After a few years spent consuming a ton of Bowie and German electro tracks while playing in multiple bands, Lewis has returned to the states to record for Chris Taylor's label Terrible Records. Sounds good to us. We don't have a ton to go on here except for the promise of the two excellent tracks above, which Twin Shadow will release as a 7" in March, to be followed up by an EP on Terrible sometime later. The songs are very European, catchy, and slick as hell. Mr. Taylor certainly has an ear for these electro-pop darlings, but give the guy credit, he's picked some good ones for us this year. Twin Shadow play Cameo in Williamsburg: 2/13 and 3/13 with a show at the Tribeca Grand on February 27.
