Twin Shadow Resurrects The Power Ballad

(Radio.com) And you thought power ballads were a cheesy thing of the '80s. Perhaps you're unfamiliar with Brooklyn singer/songwriter Twin Shadow, born George Lewis Jr. Under the Twin Shadow moniker, Lewis has trafficked sincerely in otherwise-hokey '80s tropes, his sound triangulated somewhere among The Cure, Morrissey/The Smiths and Human League for the two records he's released to date.

Now he has a new song, "To the Top," available for free download on his SoundCloud. For the song's description, Lewis— a published novelist— writes the following: "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.'"
