NEW MUSIC NOW > Twin Shadow and Hindu Pirates: What Are You Listening to This Week?

Fergie 2012/08/03 18:00:00
Meet SodaHead's new favorite artists of the week! Last week we introduced you to Milo Greene, but this week we couldn't narrow it down to just one. Brooklyn's Twin Shadow and Orange County's Hindu Pirates have been in constant rotation here at SodaHead Headquarters, so I'd like to introduce you to both of them.

Whenever I listen to Twin Shadow (aka George Lewis Jr) on my commute home I get distracted and miss my exit. Every time. But I keep listening because 1) I'm somewhat addicted and 2) sitting in LA traffic for longer is bearable if I'm blasting "Run My Heart" on repeat. Check out the track off of his newest album Confess below. It's a synth heavy anti-love song that is at times reminiscent of The Police and sounds like it should belong in an arena à la Bruce Springsteen. For me it evokes a sense of nostalgia that makes me think I've been singing it my whole life.



Coincidentally, the other song I can't get enough of this week also has "my heart" in the title. "Feel My Heart" by Hindu Pirates reminds me of Arcade Fire if they were a surf band. They're a somewhat new band, but they've already been embraced by the surf community (they recorded their latest songs in the Hurley studio and played the US Open of Surfing this week.) However, their music is a different, better brand of surf; it has soul and some grittiness that their contemporaries usually lack. You can download the track for free here, and make sure to watch out for these boys because they only have great things in store for them in the future. What are you listening to this week, SodaHeads?
You!
