Album Review

It makes sense that Twin Shadow, aka George Lewis, Jr., worked with Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor on his debut album, Forget. Lewis' croon sounds uncannily like Grizzly Bear vocalists Edward Droste and Daniel Rossen — when it’s not reaching Morrissey-like heights on songs such as the excellently lovelorn “Slow,” that is. And though Twin Shadow is included among the chillwave movement, Forget’s soft but sparkling, bedroom-quality recordings have as much in common with Grizzly Bear's pre-Yellow House output as they do with Ariel Pink. On the surface, Lewis' lush, intricate pop certainly shares a lot with chillwave icons like Pink and Neon Indian, such as the woozy keyboards dappled throughout the album, but there’s more to Twin Shadow than that. Forget's songs are undeniably nostalgic, yet they often sound like they could be blurred by a veil of tears just as easily as a fog of memories. When Lewis sings about summer, the ultimate chillwave subject, on “I Can’t Wait,” there are still ghosts and shadows lurking in the background. Indeed, Forget’s darkest songs, where Lewis mixes love and pain fearlessly, are the most distinctive. “Tyrant Destroyed” opens the album with a trembling confessional, mingling yearning and self-loathing in lyrics like “As if it wasn’t enough to hear you speak, they had to give you lips like that” as the drums pound like a nervous heartbeat. “Castles in the Snow”'s brooding romance and massed harmonies position it somewhere between Grizzly Bear and TV on the Radio, while on the suave “When We’re Dancing,” when Lewis sings “Is your cheek still red from where you caught the hand/Or are you just in love again?,” it puts unsettling cracks in the song’s glamorous façade. Twin Shadow already compares favorably to Lewis' chillwave peers, but Forget suggests he has much more to offer once that trend fades away.

4AD do it again

Have listened to nothing else since downloading it a couple of weeks ago. It sounds a bit like Joy Division in places (who doesn't these days?) but also borrows from the less revered end of 80s pop - in a good way. Lots of interesting sounds and hooks that reveal themselves slowly then sink deep.


There hasn't been an album I could sit back and listen to for hours-on-end in a very long time. I've owned it for a matter of hours now and can't get enough. Notable tracks are 'Tyrant Destroyed', 'Tether Beat', 'Castles In the Snow' and 'Forget'. Excellent album.


Born: 1983 in Dominican Republic

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

Born in the Dominican Republic, raised in Florida, and boasting an expansive musical background that includes composing for a touring dance company and fronting a Boston punk group, George Lewis, Jr. put his own multifaceted spin on chillwave when he started making solo bedroom recordings in Brooklyn as Twin Shadow. A born crooner with a nostalgic yet bittersweet '80s tone to his music, Lewis made demos that soon caught the attention of Grizzly Bear's similar-minded Chris Taylor, who produced Forget...
