Twin Shadow ‘Eclipse’ | Album Review


Without vast prior knowledge of Twin Shadow, it seems fair to say that he is part of a select few contemporaries who are so effortlessly cool that it practically drips from every note produced. Certainly, The Weeknd, How To Dress Well and Kindness seem fair comparisons as a whole, but on ‘Eclipse’, the grandiose swells of ‘Pop’-era U2 and the dissonant embellishments of Oneohtrix Point Never make for a subtler point of reference. Its modest run-time, mainstream appeal and relatively inoffensive content will surely bode well for Twin Shadow, but for what it’s worth, does come off a bit wishy-washy in the grand scheme of things.
