decker. - Shadow Days

Single review by kev@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk


It was in May that we reviewed 'Killing Me' by deker., a band described as psychedelic desert folk. The song was taken from the Arizonan group's album 'Slider', and this week sees another single from the same album. 'Shadow Days' is released tomorrow (Aug 29th) and you know what? There's no better way to describe this song than psychedelic desert folk. This song, more than any of the others, seems purpose built for that particular label, and a quite splendid tune it is too.

Now with a video to give your eyes a piece of the fun too, 'Shadow Days' moves from a simple plodding bass and slide guitars which add an eerie vibe and then gradually begins to swell. The vocals are also a touch spooky, but they're perfect for this track. It creates a real atmosphere and the chorus is pretty special. It might not be a first listen song, it might take two or three goes, but it's worth the effort, as by the time you reach the squealing guitar and crashing drums the song feels like some kind of psychotic episode, and it's really quite spectacular.
