George Lewis Jr., who records and performs as Twin Shadow, sounds distant over the phone. His voices sounds weary, which we're willing to attribute to his constant touring schedule. He's worn-out but sharp, his mind seemingly on a constant rush. It's a fascinating world, the life of a musician, especially one whose perceived eccentricities have played a huge role in his rising star.
Lewis Jr. draws inspiration from personal stories about relationships, both present and past, and experiences on the road. Sometimes, it's difficult to separate the man in the music from the man who creates it.
