Twin Shadow Reflects on 1990s Movies and TV with Video for “Saturdays” Feat. HAIM as Cartoons

Twin Shadow (aka George Lewis Jr.) released a new album, Caer, back in April via Warner Bros./Reprise. Now he has shared a new video for “Saturdays” (which features HAIM). Aaron Hymes directed the video, which finds Lewis reflecting on the movies and TV shows of his youth in the 1990s. There are riffs on Desperado and The Craft, among others, with new actors recreating the films, as well as Twin Peaks. HAIM show up as cartoons in an anime style. Watch it below.

When the album was announced Twin Shadow shared two songs from it, “Saturdays” (which features HAIM) and “Little Woman” (the latter shared via a video). Both made our Songs of the Week list. Then he shared a third song, the John Hughes soundtrack sounding “Brace” (featuring Rainsford), via a video that played more like a lyric video (it was also a Song of the Week), as well as the somewhat funky “When You’re Wrong.”

The album is Twin Shadow’s fourth full-length album and the follow-up to 2015’s Eclipse (and the free Night Rally mixtape from the same year). It’s the first album since the 2015 tour bus accident that resulted in Lewis having hand surgery. Caer is pronounced ka-air and is the Spanish word for “to fall.” Lewis considers this a sister album to his acclaimed 2010 debut album, Forget, as a previous press release added, “in that it’s a record with hidden doorways and secret passages; more is revealed the more time you spend inside of it.”

Lewis had this to say about the album in the press release: “Sometimes I feel like I have to take a fall to essentially get to the next phase of my life. It’s happened over and over. I’ve been through so many musical phases and through so many relationships with friends and lovers. I always feel like I’m standing on the edge of a cliff, looking down and thinking, ‘This is the only way forward: onto the next thing.’ It’s sort of destructive, but I guess I thrive on rebirth.”
