“Tether Beat” – Twin Shadow

I just discovered Twin Shadow this past week and immediately fell in love.  Twin Shadow is the stage name of George Lewis Jr. who released his debut “Forget” in late 2010.  In particular, I think the album is perfect for the summer.  It’s got a little of that relaxed, beachy feel, and some peppy synths to keep it light, airy, and fun.  The track I chose starts out with a nice hand-drum beat and lone, deep, brassy synth.  George’s soft, poetic lyrics layer in, questioning the subject on whether they have any emotion.   In particular, “Do you sigh yourself awake?” I find to be quite visual and interesting.  The track starts to pick up at this point, adding in a woozy synth, dripping in 80’s luster.  This is a fantastic debut that I would highly recommend giving a listen to.
