Twin Shadow, Elliphant

When: Sun., June 16, 9 p.m. 2013

Indie rock's '80s-pop nostalgia comes to a head in the songs of George Lewis Jr., Twin Shadow's figurehead. Where 2010's Forget favored murkier, moodier production, last year's Confess introduced a more cocksure Twin Shadow. Propulsive Joy Division bass lines and glossy synths provide an appropriately lush backdrop for Lewis' arrogant croon, a blur of Morrissey and Michael Hutchence. Appropriately, Lewis' lyrics on Confess undercut love and longing with lust and dishonesty, dickishness with earnestness. That duality undercuts his confident front, too, and suggests the troubadour as something more relatable and engaging. Elliphant opens. —Bryan C. Reed
