Eclipse

Genre: Electronica; Lead Performer: Twin Shadow; Release Date: 03/17/2015; Music Label: Warner Bros.

New-wave revivalist George Lewis Jr., who records as Twin Shadow, continues the conversation he began with the royal female “you” on 2012’s great Confess. But while he once claimed to be bad news, now he’s pleading: Come closer. “I’m right here, I’m ready, I need this love,” he confides on the ’80s-style power ballad “I’m Ready.” It’s rarely subtle sonically—synths come in bursts, bass lines thump like they’re reaching for the strobe lights—but Lewis’ seductive voice provides an irresistible tether.
