TWIN SHADOW

Almost a year has passed since George Lewis Jr. dropped his debut, the Chris Taylor produced, Forget under his Twin Shadow moniker, and it still stands as one of the best new wave, 80s revival records around. Last week, the personable rock star played a wicked set at NXNE in Toronto, and he has now just released a live version of one of his album's many highlights, “Tyrant Destroyed.”

Directed by Johnny Woods, the clip shows Lewis and his band rocking out as disoriented colors and distorted special effects help set the mood. Musically, it's equally as good live, and that is quite the bold statement. View it below; if for some reason you haven't heard Forget yet, cop it on Amazon via 4AD/Terrible Records.


Twin Shadow has also recently announced his lengthy "Clean Cuts Tour". Check out the dates here.
