"I met Syd and Matt from The Internet last year and they were just awesome, genuine people and I’m drawn to people like that, I feel like they’re the people most likely to make honest music. I got a really good vibe from them and am a fan of their first album Purple Naked Ladies.
Problem was we just didn’t have the time to get in together and do a batch of sessions because of the ocean divide and everything but we wanted to do something together, so this mixtape is the result of that. I love what those guys have done with the songs, they’ve brought a different energy to them and I’m stoked for people to hear it. Hopefully it’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” - Raleigh Ritchie

Twin Shadow reinvents the power ballad with new single “To The Top”. The new song is his most ambitious recording to date with mammoth choruses, soaring vocals, + anthemic arrangements.
The song was recorded in Los Angeles at Hollywood Forever Cemetery & Studio Zapata Zabala with longtime Twin Shadow musical cohort Wynne Bennet. “To The Top” is the 1st new material by Twin Shadow since “Old Love/ New Love”, a song he recorded for the Grand Theft Auto 5 soundtrack.
“What is it when you realize that someone isn’t right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell.
It’s not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness…We just want to say “wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again.”
