Bonnaroo Spotlight: Twin Shadow


George Lewis Jr. aka Twin Shadow bust onto the Brooklyn music scene in 2010 with his debut release Forget. The album features atmospheric instrumentation that evokes the feel of 80s new age music. It is also easy to hear the influence of Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor who produced the album as some tracks sound like they could very well appear on a Grizzly Bear disc. It will be interesting to see how Lewis fills out the rest of his band and re-creates Forget live on stage at Bonnaroo, maybe Taylor will even show up. No matter who ends up filling out the rest of the band, it is guaranteed that Lewis’ intoxicating voice and entrancing riffs will keep the crowd captivated for what should be scheduled as a night time set. Outside of his Twin Shadow solo work, Lewis also collaborated with Taylor and Solange Knowles recently on a track for the Coca Cola Foundation’s Replenish Africa Initiative (RAIN) that you can download here for a donation. Check out the video for “Kenya” below as well as a live session of Twin Shadow’s single “Castles in the Snow.”
