how Lewis Jr. as an artist takes those sounds and influences and
manifests something fresh out of them. He has the ability to breathe new
life into something aged, and on the
two albums he has created as Twin Shadow, Lewis Jr. has harnessed the
powers of his own unfiltered, uncut emotion and combined it with the
sensibilities and sounds of the music he enjoys.
“I've always had a soft spot for ballads. They're the most immediately emotional and they're set up to open you up. They're slow — they really leak in. They don't smash you in the face, they just kind of go right to your heart in a way,” he says.
