Published Apr 15, 2014Pop crooner Twin Shadow has busied himself with his UNDER THE CVRS series as of late, exploring material by U2, the Smiths and others. Now, his obsession with massive choruses, '80s instrumentation and melodrama is on display with the new single "To the Top."
On the song's official SoundCloud page, Twin Shadow's George Lewis Jr. shared the following statement:
What is it when you realize that someone isn't right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell.
It's not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness...We just want to say "wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again."
Check out "To the Top" below. Lewis Jr. is reportedly working on a follow-up to 2012's Confess.
