Twin Shadow – “Five Seconds”

In February, our T. Cole Rachel spoke with Twin Shadow’s George Lewis, Jr., about his as-of-then-untitled album. From their chat:

STEREOGUM: Does the new material feel like a marked departure from what you were doing before?

GL: I know that to me it is the next step, it’s still very much about synthesizers and less of an emphasis on drum machines and more on sampled acoustic drums. So the rhythm section will maybe be the biggest difference, but I’m not really sure. I think it’s just the next step from Forget.

The first glimpse of the new Twin Shadow, the newly-released “Five Seconds,” is pretty much Lewis putting his money where his mouth is, as the song is an uptempo, New Wave-y jam that’s probably the leanest and most swagger-heavy thing he’s done to date. His new one, Confess, is out this summer. Stream it below and nab the download in exchange for an e-mail.
