Twin Shadow

Twin Shadow — a.k.a. Dominican artist George Lewis, Jr.— produced and released his latest album, Confess, this past summer. Lewis gained inspiration for the album after experiencing a motorcycle accident in Boston, which is reflected in the video below.

And this is pretty cool... two of the albums songs, "Five Seconds" and "Patient", were transformed into a music video saga which drew inspiration from Lewis's novel Night of the Silver Sun. 

The A.V. Club calls Twin Shadow a formidable 80's-nostalgist, and describes the album as filled with Morrissey-esque yelps and Human League-worthy choruses, but Twin Shadow manages to digest his influences rather than simply replicate them.

Listen to "Five Seconds" below:
