Twin Shadow – Castles In The Snow

Twin Shadow is the moniker for Puerto Rican born, Florida-raised electropop hit maker George Lewis Jr. With the help of his band members, Twin Shadow creates wonderfully hazy new wave pop tunes that pulls in the best elements of 80s beats and makes them current. The synth weaves in and out of tune in some tracks, creating a haunting, dreamy, fuzzy atmosphere. There’s a slight fragility to Lewis’ voice that I like. He sings softly, letting the rest of the music shine through. His debut album entitled Forget, produced by Grizzly Bear’s own Chris Taylor, was released in the fall of 2010.

Check out the rest of their 4AD session here. It’s fabulous. He’s performing at Sasquatch in two weeks (I’m weeping because I won’t be there) and will open for the stupendous Florence and the Machine on her North American tour this summer.
