"Confess", Twin Shadow's follow up to "Forget" is, now that Stepdad's album has come out, EASILY my most anticipated album of 2012. Lead single "Five Seconds" returns that Twin Shadow sound we all fell for so hard on songs like "Castles in the Snow" and ""When We're Dancing" but cranks with a impassioned energy and emotion that was never fully realized on the first album. Consider it Twin Shadow on bath salts.
Because I'm feeling supremely confident that all the songs will be as badass as "Five Seconds" I'm going to go out on a limb and state right here right now that "Confess" will be my favorite album of 2012. Let the hype machine begin.
The video? Well let's just say it is an inspired, weird, out of left field take. It is certainly nothing that I expected when I heard the song but then again I'm a simpleton. Every video that plays out in my head is just the Wild Things pool scene playing on an endless loop. #plottwist!
