Introducing... Only Shadows

Formed in a warehouse in late 2013, Only Shadows have been described by the likes of Amazing Radio as "One of the UK's brightest hopes for guitar music", and the band have in their very short life span supported the likes of Coasts, Saint Raymond & Mercury nominee Ghost Poet. After we heard one of their initial demos we liked what we heard and we were yearning for more, and last year saw their first EP, but today we've got the exclusive stream of their new track "Let Your Guard Down" from their forthcoming EP - "The Start".

Having already introduced you all to them before, the band has since changed sound slightly and replaced a member or two, but they've still got the likes of Hollyoaks, Amazing Radio and some of the hottest bands around asking them to come on tour, it's only going to be a matter of time before these guys are selling out some big shows of their own. They're on tour with Young Kato in April too! With the track exploring a few sub-genres in it's 3 and a half minutes, this certainly shows the band off well, you've got the fun and bouncy Indie-Pop in the first third, then it takes a turn into something a little heavier, maybe comparable to Biffy Clyro's latest work. The song ends in a wash of rushing guitars and certainly makes us want more!

For fans of // Editors, Biffy Clyro, The Pigeon Detectives, Wolf Alice
