We’ve had an incredibly long Twin Shadow drought, though esteemed musician George Lewis Jr. has made surprise appearances on Rainsford’s Intentions as well as Zeds Dead’s Stardust in the past year. But it’s been a few years since Twin Shadow released any new material of his own, so when we came across two new tracks from the Brooklyn based synthpop and new wave artist, we were overjoyed. And he’s linked up with the HAIM sisters on one of the tracks, no less! That song is named Saturdays, a crisp pop rock thrummer whose punchiness and crunchy rhythm is perfect for the HAIM alliance. Alongside Saturdays comes Little Woman, a moodier experimental offering that feels very different from George Lewis Jr.’s usual repertoire. There’s a theatrical feel to the brilliant song, almost like a Phantom Of The Opera meets Perfume Genius aura with its crashing chords and softly brooding vocals. The welcome arrivals herald the coming of a new album from Twin Shadow named Caer, out April 27th. Stream/download Saturdays, here. Watch the video for Little Woman below.
