Watch Twin Shadow’s creepy/sexy ‘Turn Me Up’ video

The singer strips in the shadows in his visual for the blown-out breakup track

As Twin Shadow, George Lewis Jr. has always explored the dark underside of libido, it’s no surprise that “Turn Me Up” sees the transnational songwriter strip right back, receding into fragmented echoes and hollowed-out longing. The stunning, sultry breakup track, taken from his third LP Eclipse (out March 17), has a sparseness that tightropes between the eerie and sensual, exploring elemental conflicts of skin and shadow, valour and vulnerability. It all comes together in the video, where director Alex Turvey spotlights a glamorously dressed (and, often enough, undressed) Lewis in a cavelike chamber, tormented by pure passion. “My friends keep asking, ‘Turn me up, what's that mean?’” Lewis says of the track. “I keep saying, ‘Take more from me. Ask more of me. Give me more back. Stop fighting against the things you want the most.’”
