The Best Records of 2018 - Void Music

"El primer larga duración hizo que valiera la espera, un disco lleno de fuerza, un torrente energético, con pocos espacios de sosiego, pero que dentro de ese despliegue sonoro es capaz de transmitir paralelamente un sentido de angustia existencial, contrastante con el suave, melódico Tyree, dejando una sensación ambivalente que en su conjunto nos ofrece una bella escala de grises." - Void Music [By David Rangel and Beto Sigala ]

Shadow Age is a Richmond, VA based post-punk band. They were founded in 2013 by Aaron Tyree, vocalist and guitar player. Evan Recinos, the Shadow Age drummer, came up with the name Shadow Age. Shadow Age was initially named Colony but changed their name because there were other bands with that name and they didn't want to get in hot water over the name once they released material officially. Some of Shadow Age's jangly guitar driven influences include early Cure records, The Chameleons, and The Sound. Everyone in the band comes from diverse backgrounds, so they also incorporate more synth-based sounds from bands like OMD, Asylum Party, and Early Ministry. 
(Asylum Party is one we at Play Alone hold very dear, that's where we got our name)

 

Aaron Tyree writes all the lyrics for the band and they come from personal experiences, both inward reflections, and observation. The lyrics are not particularly political, although the band has its roots in the politically conscientious punk and hardcore. 

Their releases to date are: 
Albums
Shadow Age - Shadow Age     Play Alone Records     2018
Singles & EPs
Shadow Age - Silaluk     6131 Records     2015
Shadow Age - The Fall     Not On Label (Shadow Age Self-released)     2017

This, their first LP has been likened to For Against or The Cure’s early iconic records. Evan Recinos’ drum work evokes 80s reminiscent beats along with Ben Powell filling in the rhythm on bass. Aaron Tyree lays down dreamy vocals and subtle guitar riffs that are the distinctive continuity of Shadow Age's sound. 

 

This self-titled Shadow Age record came out of Aaron's experiences of 2013, having dealt with severe frostbite. It got into his bones and almost made him lose part of his foot. He was hooked to an IV of antibiotics for most of the year. He focused on writing music and thinking about the band to stay positive and pass the time. The album is a heartfelt testament to perseverance and the enduring power of music.
