Naked Giants - The Shadow

The Shadow is an album of growth. Each song on it examines an aspect of this growth through a different musical lens, adding up to a series of rock-and-roll vignettes of light, shadow, anxiety, and responsibility. Frantic punk-scenes of information overload are contrasted by patient drones of introspection; fun, ear-worm musings of life as a young rock band are juxtaposed with the heavier responsibility of having a voice and not quite knowing what to say. The amalgam of information in the songs is complemented with a blend of sonic perspectives. All of this adds up to a swirling, dynamic, disorienting but honest image of modern life as young, able, and anxious people.
