Twin Shadow – “Old Love / New Love”
As someone who spent basically all of 2003 cocooned up and playing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, I learned very well how perfectly the exquisite cheese of Mr. Mister’s “Broken Wings” blended with the gorgeously rendered fake-Miami architecture and the onscreen mayhem that the game offered. The rabidly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V, which comes out next week, has new songs from people like Tyler, The Creator and Wavves, and it looks like it’ll also have a new Twin Shadow song that’ll recapture some of the “Broken Wings” feeling. The new Twin Shadow song “Old Love / New Love” is widescreen ’80s pop, filtered through the lush house of, say, Masters At Work, and it’s awesome. Listen below.
Grand Theft Auto V is out 9/17 on Rockstar Games.
