Twin Shadow – “To The Top”

By Tom Breihan / April 15, 2014 - 10:57 am

Between Swans and the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, this has already been a ridiculously strong morning for new music. And now Twin Shadow have taken a break from their UNDER THE CVRS project, in which George Lewis, Jr. has been persistently knocking out beautiful covers on YouTube, to give us a brand-new near-masterpiece of their own. Lewis is currently working on a new Twin Shadow album, and now he’s shared a new song called “To The Top.” It’s a beautifully rendered piece of ’80s-style slow-dance prom balladry, and it’s possibly the biggest, grandest thing that Lewis has ever recorded. Download it below.

Twin Shadow’s follow-up to 2012’s Confess is coming sometime soon, hopefully, from 4AD.
