George Lewis Jr. has practiced restoration for years. From his twinkling Hacienda roots, to his make-believe DJ stint in Grand Theft Auto V, the 35-year-old that masquerades as Twin Shadow nailed down a particular reverie of the 80s even before the big to-do over Stranger Things. And see here - we can argue over the merits of 2012's neon-outlined caricature Confess (me - too much hair gel), or the totally streamlined follow-up Eclipse (me - don't wanna know).
George Lewis Jr's latest is named after the Spanish word ‘caer’, meaning "to fall", a reflection of the constant cycles of rebirth he's been through both musically and emotionally. He likens it to the feeling of standing on the edge of a cliff, having to "take a fall to get to the next phase of life". Change is a recurring theme throughout Twin Shadow's back catalogue, with relationships being the source of much of his best work.
