SHADE Go Interstellar

SHADE‘s debut EP, Interstellar, is out now on Bread & Butter Records.

“Each composition stands as a worthy contender for a headlining spot in a stadium, with the title track, ‘Interstellar’, alone being worth the price of admission,” apparently, and you can verify that for yourselves by streaming/buying it here.

The North Manchester quartet of Luke (vocal/guitar), Adam (bass/vocal), Ben (guitar) and Oliver (drums) got together in Spring 2019. Whilst the pandemic reduced their live appearances at the time, it didn’t stop them refining their craft, writing and building a loyal following which continues to grow.

While SHADE (always written in capitals) possess typical Mancunian attitude and swagger, they’re not clones of what’s gone before. There may be elements of Oasis, Stone Roses etc; they’ve picked up from their parents’ record collection, but the sound they craft is said to be “”100% their own”. Instead of harking back to the past, SHADE are looking firmly forward.

‘I Can’t Sleep/Lost in This World Together was the first release from SHADE, a double A-Side single – ‘I Can’t Sleep’ is a mid-tempo, psychedelic rocker, while ‘Lost in This World Together’ is a euphoric declaration of love that journeys from subtle melodic riff into epic indie rock banger.

You can stream/buy ‘I Can’t Sleep/Lost in This World Together’ here.
