THE SHADOW - AS THE SUN SETS IN THE WEST
As part of NDN Records' new limited edition FUCK THE B-SIDE series (strictly limited edition one-sided 7" singles), The Shadow gives you their vision of the perfect LOVE SONG.
Shrouded in a quirky song structure, the bittersweet LOVE SONG takes the olde theme of love through the wringer. And back again.
Wanted love returned by unwanted love and vice versa. This ain't a fairy tale. It's the real deal. It's the trial and tribulation of love as experienced by everyone. Claustrophobic lyrics soon dominate,
“You want to be alone, partners are there to serve, lost in a crowd of one, easy to lose your nerve”.
You know of any love songs that feature a chorus going "I Can't Love You"? You do now. By the time the chorus hits you in the face, you know you’re not in for any ordinary “Love Song”.
