“Shadow” is the debut single from Nashville-based Alt Pop artist Tony Apolczer who has taken inspiration for his first track from a diverse array of artists. Instead of striving to create an archetypal and easily ingestible track, Tony Apolczer looked to the likes of Billie Eilish, and Twenty One Pilots to create a striking and atmospherically moody track with Shadow.
The minor notes on the keys set a sombre mood in the prelude, yet in the verses which lead up to the chorus the momentum gently builds allowing the soundscape to feed you a subtle serving of melancholic euphoria. That’s the quite the juxtaposition to create in a track, it’s no wonder that so many people have already caught the hype of this release.
You can check out Tony Apolczer’s single Shadow for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now. If you’re as won over with Shadow as we are, you won’t have long to wait before the release of their 5-track EP which is due for release later this year.
