Twin Shadow – Old Love/New Love
Twin Shadow, or George Lewis, Jr., has been a staple on my iPhone ever since his debut Forget came out in 2010. The blending of nostalgic ’80s new wave and synthpop is certainly something that is right up my alley and apparently it is also right for the new Grand Theft Auto, as Lewis was asked to produce a song for the game’s soundtrack. That song happens to be “Old Love/New Love” and came out the same day as the game. In “Old Love/New Love” Lewis takes a step away from the indie-world and a step toward the dance-world with ease. It is a fantastic song that rides Lewis’ lyricism and a consistent piano through the peaks and valleys of an old love and new love.
