Twin Shadow may be short a bass player now, but Russ Manning or, Rush Midnight as he’s now known has hit the ground running with a video from his first EP called +1, set to drop on October 30th via Cascine.
He’ll be bringing his new wave vibe to CMJ next month and we can’t wait to see him play live.
Here’s his bio:
“In the midst of a demanding touring schedule with Twin Shadow and endless nights on the road, Russ recorded a handful of demos in hotel rooms and disparate studios over the course of two years. A formally trained jazz musician, Russ was born and bred in Brooklyn, and his music propagates an undeniable sense of attitude and sexuality. As much inspired by his travels across Europe, Brazil and Australia, his debut EP, +1, personifies the thrill, mystery and recklessness of abandoning the guidebook and giving yourself over to the forces of fate.”
