A few weeks ago, Twin Shadow shared an absolutely incredible new song called “To The Top,” a towering mass of triumphant early-’80s-style pop craftsmanship, and then nothing; we don’t know if they have an album coming out or what. But last night on Conan, George Lewis, Jr. and his band sang a huge and life-affirming rendition of the song and got me excited about it all over again. Performing in a circle and adding some gospel catharsis to a song that already sounded tremendous without it, Twin Shadow gave one of the finest late-night performances I’ve seen in recent memory. The video is below, and you really should watch it.
So, uh, can we have a whole album like that? Please?
