George Lewis Jr. of Twin Shadow has written a novel titled The Night of the Silver Sun. The narrative ties in with Twin Shadow’s 2012 sophomore release, Confess, and Lewis told Pitchfork that it is a continuation of the video for “Five Seconds.”
“It’s about a motorcycle gang in the future,” Lewis said. “The video is the prologue to the story, and it’s about friendship, in a way; two black motorcyclists who are fighting the good fight.”
New York writer Elliot Aronow is featuring an excerpt from Lewis’ novel on his website. Aronow had previously published some of Lewis’ writing in his zine, Our Show.
