Live Video: Twin Shadow

photo by Matthew B. Thompson (view set)

It’s said the brightest flame casts the darkest shadow, but in the case of Brooklyn’s Twin Shadow, that there’s plenty of light there too. On his past two albums, filled with 80′s synths, danceable rhythms and crunchy hooks, Brooklyn’s George Lewis Jr. crooned stories of grief and heartbreak. Live in the KEXP studio recently, with just his voice and an acoustic guitar, Lewis was doubly melancholy, yet never let the elusive undertones of sadness fully take over, as he performed two songs from 2012 album, Confess, a cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Highway Kind”, and his brand new single, “To The Top”. Enjoy this exclusive session as, stripped of his electronic entourage, Twin Shadow’s raw purity comes shining through.
