“I’m Not In Love,” 10cc’s exquisite 1975 cheese-nugget, has long functioned as a certain sort of litmus test. If you are actually into the craft of pop music, the little studio intricacies, the weird sounds that you can sometimes find in bazillion-dollar dentists’-office pop songs, then there’s a good chance you love the song. Twin Shadow’s George Lewis, Jr. is evidently about that studio-pop life. He and his band recently posted video of themselves doing a tender acoustic cover of the song in a dark room somewhere, with a murky non-sequitur interlude included. Watch it below.
Twin Shadow’s 2012 album Confess is not a thing you should forget about.
