Twin Shadow Played for the Beautiful and Fabulous at SoHo House

Alex Chapman
The beautiful and the fabulous gathered on the Soho House rooftop yesterday evening for drinks, dinner and a poolside performance by Twin Shadow, the new wave/pop project headed by musician George Lewis Jr. The band, which recently joined Florence + The Machine at Central Park and will be at Pitchfork Festival this weekend with the likes of Odd Future, Fleet Foxes and Animal Collective, played a brilliantly bizarre set that seemed to channel Grizzly Bear's funky sister -- not so surprising given that GB's Chris Taylor produced Twin Shadow's debut album, Forget.
Lewis Jr. and co. were extremely well-received by those who chose to listen, many of whom spoke highly of the night's closer, a sexy rendition of the band's buzzed-about track "Castles In The Snow." Those who praised the performance certainly had the right idea -- for a group so young, Twin Shadow combines a perfect amount of cool factor and professionalism that implies they've played together for years (in the opinion of this PAPER contributor).

Patrons who were carefree enough danced to Twin Shadow's tunes, among them designer Johan Lindenberg, who looked cool as a cucumber while he nodded along to the block-rocking indie beats.
