On every song, Lewis’s breathy, straightforward vocals evoke the swagger of Prince. But Lewis’s R&B leanings give the sound of Twin Shadow its own distinct identity.
The inspiration for Confess came from a series of motorcycle rides which Lewis took after an accident, and the record reflects his youthful energy. The Dominican-born songwriter confronts himself with fist-pumping anthems which still manage to ponder rejection and desperation, and Lewis know how to tell a story—his new novel The Night of the Silver Sun ties in with his latest record and centers on a motorcycle gang in the future.
In this World Cafe session, hear Twin Shadow perform tracks from Confess and sit down for a memorable interview with host David Dye.
