Twin Shadow are currently in the studio working on the follow-up to 2012’s acclaimed album Confess, and in the midst of that have dropped “To The Top,” a grand-scale pop production that’s as melodic as it is extravagant. Twin Shadow frontman George Lewis, Jr. has quite the penchant for penning monumental ballads, and “To The Top” further showcases those songwriting abilities. There is also an official statement released alongside the track, which you can read below.
What is it when you realize that someone isn’t right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell.
It’s not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness…We just want to say “wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again.”
