And you thought power ballads were a cheesy thing of the ’80s.
Perhaps you’re unfamiliar with Brooklyn singer/songwriter Twin Shadow, born George Lewis Jr. Under the Twin Shadow moniker, Lewis has trafficked sincerely in otherwise-hokey ’80s tropes, his sound triangulated somewhere among The Cure, Morrissey/The Smiths and Human League for the two records he’s released to date.
Now he has a new song, “To the Top,” available for free download on his SoundCloud.
