Shadowlands





Shadowlands climb up the steep and thorny way to heaven

Shadowlands know what's up when it comes to brooding darkwave and post-punk. Their sonance aligns more with the horror-esque sounds of a more "traditional" '80s style of post-punk while still remaining original, and definitely not coming off replicated. It's for this reason they're one of the first acts to come to mind when thinking of local bands of this genre in general, and why all of you voted them your favorite band to play the recent darkwave and post-punk festival Out From the Shadows Fest.

Another special victory for Shadowlands is that they've been chosen to play the next Brickbat Mansion night, Portland's female-led goth and darkwave DJ night. Lead singer Amy Sabin will join resident spinners DJ Curatix and DJ Wednesday in being the premiere ladies of the night.

This edition of Brickbat Mansion is an RSVP event held at the steep and thorny way to heaven on May 5, so if you wish to attend, respond via the Facebook event or by sending an email to rsvp@thesteepandthornywaytoheaven.com. Listen to the Shadowlands track "Fade" below and be on the lookout for their video for "Liberation," coming soon.





Saturday Night Sounds: Shadowlands - "Clean Life"

This little bit of a late night Saturday Night Sounds jam is the latest from dark wavers Shadowlands. They just premiered the video for "Clean Life" a couple days ago on Gritty Birds, and their record release show is happening at Kenton Club as I type this. The video compiles esoterically shot clips of infamous Portland spots, reflecting the city in a brooding light that's perfect for this gloomy, rainy night. 

If you happened to have missed their release show tonight, dim the lights and enjoy.
