Twin Shadow - Confess

Confess, the brand-new sophomore album from New York’s Twin Shadow, straddles some imaginary line between twee, romantic new wave and dark, pulsing late-’80s R&B — like what happened if the peak-era incarnations of Morrissey and Bobby Brown attempted to record a synthpop album together, for some reason. We’ve already seen the excellent video for the summer-jam-contender first single “Five Seconds,” and now the rest of the album, which basically rules, is streaming below.

Confess is out 7/10 on 4AD.

  1. Packed in the middle, bookends are light. Not as good as Forget, but still very good. And there you have my two-sentence review.

  2. starts off real strong, loses me in the middle, “secret song” hits hard. feels short. hope it grows on me like Forget did.

    love how he’s going to egyptian lover and timmy t for cover inspiration.

  4. these are strong songs. magic mike strong. love the entire album. golden light is a great way to start.

  5. This will probably grow on me, though I do remember liking Forget a lot upon first listen. Still good stuff. In other news, that album art is atrocious. Search your feelings, Lord Vader. You will know it to be true.

  6. This definitely seems more pop-oriented than Forget, right now i’m still ambivalent on the changes, but it’s still a great album, idk if i’ll end up liking it better than Forget tho.
