Default Twin Shadow

I searched but nothing came up. Anyone into him? To me he sounds a little like David Bowie mixed with White Lies.

Lewis was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in Florida. Around 2000, he moved to Boston and started the band Mad Man Films alongside Joseph Ciampini (drums) (of Hooray For Earth), and Zak Longo (bass) of Before Lazers. Mad Man Films released two records independently. Around 2006, Lewis relocated to Brooklyn, NY and adopted the Twin Shadow moniker.[2] In 2010 he released his debut album Forget, produced by Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear. The album has been described as "steeped in 1980s new wave",[1] "building from streaks of haunting synth textures",[3] having "sophisticated melodies", "R&B intimacy", and "poetic lyrics",[4] and "hazily new wave-tinged pop".

Love Twin Shadows.
There's some pretty sweet sounds in Forget. Album's been in my mix for a while now.

Sort of a strange artist... this album isn't what you'd expect in 2010. But I really like it.

I like this song a lot.

I just recently heard him interviewed on The Current and he said that he was going to be working on a hip hop project next. I'm interested to see what he puts out in the future.

I love Twin Shadow, and this is my favorite song by him.

The whole 80's image thing is kind of pretentious and tiring, but there is no doubt the man can write an awesome song.
