It’s easy to be cynical in the face of a Hallmark holiday, especially Valentine’s Day. As if the pressure and expectations to show love through consumerism weren’t enough, the day also thrives on leaving out all the lonely hearts. Thankfully, a sliver of darkness from Twin Temple has cut through all the treacle.
On “Lucifer, My Love,” the Satanic doo-wop duo conjure an exquisite old school love ballad, except dedicated to the multiverse’s number one bad boy. We can only imagine that Mr. Morningstar feels like such a bae when Alexandra James coos “I may not be a virgin/But I’m saving myself for you.”
