mp3: Twin Shadow - "To the Top"

Twin Shadow

Twin Shadow's George Lewis Jr.'s been working on an excellent YouTube-based covers series recently, but we're glad he's back to original music too - here's "To the Top," recorded at L.A.'s Hollywood Forever Cemetery, that's reportedly indicative of a new record in the works. If you needed your dose of fist-pumping, emotional '80s-inspired balladry today, you've found it - Lewis goes for the jugular with soaring vocals and instrumentals; you can almost visualize the big hair and backlighting in the music video. It also sounds kind of like a song Haim would do, which makes sense - Lewis is one of the only songwriters currently working who rivals those ladies for their pop-historical voracity. Check it out - and stay tuned for album news.
