Brooklyn-based band Twin Shadow (4AD) stopped by Brussels’ AB Club last night, granting us with a very energetic show and a set-list packed with tracks from their much-hyped debut Forget. We had a quick chat with charming lead singer George Lewis Jr. Voice of an angel, hair like Prince. If spring wasn’t in the air before, it definitely is now.

What are some of your favourite words?


Why did you name your album Forget?

I am forgetful.

How did growing up in the suburbs of Florida impact you as a person and as a musician?

It made me bored – so I had to do something.

the word- Twin shadow-10

The song I can’t wait is filled with lost moments – underlining passion and desire, first kisses and making love in a cornfield. All these feelings are held back, though. They almost hurt. Where did the idea for this song come from?

I have to keep it to myself.

How do you keep track of your ideas?

I voice memo them on to my iPhone.

What feeling did you want to surface out of this album OR was there no intended feeling?

I just wanted to be honest about all of the lies I told myself in the last 20 years.

Does every artist need a tragedy?
