George Lewis Jr. has certainly come a long way since his introspective, low-key debut Forget. His music has grown more assertive, with “Five Seconds” and the entirety of Confess driving home that point. But even his sophomore album sounds humble in light of his recent single “Turn Me Up”.
Lewis Jr.’s previous 2014 single, “To The Top”, hit a similar groove as “Turn Me Up”, with both offering us choruses meant to fill giant arenas. Everything about Twin Shadow is magnified on this new single, providing us with a greater idea of the ground Lewis Jr. is willing to cover.
