George Lewis Jr., aka Twin Shadow, recently said in an interview, "At this point, my life has nothing to do with being in a long-term relationship. I'm starting to question the importance of truly existing with someone, if it's really healthy at all." Those two sentences sum up his second full-length album, Confess
, pretty well. Confess
is an album full of love songs, but not in the traditional sense. Instead, Lewis Jr. is speaking about love on a heart-breakingly honest level and seeing it for what it sometimes is -- just a game.
