Twin Shadow, aka George Lewis Jr., had this to say about his new single ‘Hollow Days’, which finds him exploring his Dominican roots in addition to the country sound he’s known for;
“Growing up in a house with a Dominican mother the house was filled with the sounds of Latin music, specifically Bachata and Merengue. It is a genre of music I’ve wanted to explore since my parents moved back to Santo Domingo 8 years ago. Their return to my birthplace has given me an opportunity to feel more connected to the island by visiting between recording in Los Angeles. In blending what I’ve been doing with songwriting as Twin Shadow and the rhythms of these genres I hope to intensify the bond I have with a place I hope to one day again call home,” Lewis said in an e-mail.
The release of the Wynne Bennett-produced track follows the release of his new album Caer in April 2018 and a summer tour with Beck and Alt-J.
