Turn It Up! Twin Shadow Releases Video For “Turn Me Up”

Twin Shadow Promo

LA-based artist Twin Shadow, aka George Lewis, Jr., has debuted a new video for the track 'Turn Me Up' which was directed by Alex Turvey.

The striking black and white video was styled by creative director Milan Zrnic, and features clothing from Diesel and KTZ. 'Turn Me Up' is taken from Lewis's upcoming album 'Eclipse' which will be released on March 17th. He will tour North America in support of the album throughout March and April.

"I think it's important to let people take what they need from songs instead of explaining too much about what they mean for me personally," says Lewis. "But my friends keep asking, 'Turn me up' - what's that mean? I keep saying, 'Take more from me. Ask more of me. Give me more back. Stop fighting against the things you want the most.'"

Lewis adds adds: "I'm surrounded by great people right now, people who are pushing me, like my twin sister Ligia Lewis, my creative director Milan Zrnic, and Alex Turvey, who all worked with me to create the visuals for 'Turn Me Up'."-DocFB

Diagnosis: The Dominican Republic-born, Florida-bred Lewis adopted the Twin Shadow moniker in 2006. He has released two previous albums on indie labels Terrible and 4AD, 2010's 'Forget' and 2012's 'Confess'.

Under The Sheets: Lissie Releases Covers Album Including Danzig, Drake, & Dylan!

Lissie Promo Photo

Lissie announced the release of her new covers EP, 'Cryin' To You', featuring re-worked versions of Danzig's 'Mother', One Direction's 'Story of My Life', Judas Priest's 'Electric Eye', Drake's 'Hold On, We're Going Home' and Bob Dylan's 'To Ramona".

)

"The band and I are very excited to release our new covers EP "Cryin' To You". Self produced in our home of Ojai, CA. We were approached to cover "Mother" by Danzig which led to a fun week in the studio that inspired us to lay down some other covers we had either been playing live already or had been wanting to do,"

)

"I chose "Story of My Life" because it was a current hit with lyrics I could identify with. "Electric Eye" because a friend suggested I check it out after a conversation we'd had about the Internet and privacy. That song was ahead of its time! We've been performing "Hold On, We're Going Home" live and I think it's a really beautiful song. "To Ramona" I'd covered as a solo artist and its message still speaks to me. We've jokingly called what we've made "roller rink folk metal" but as silly as it sounds I think this work is indicative of what's to come. Raw and tough, yet still tender and vulnerable."

Lissie's cover of 'Mother', taken from the EP, has been synced to the trailer of the upcoming blockbuster video game 'Evolve', which has scored over 10 million views in under two weeks on YouTube.
