Shrouded In Shadows Release Day!

In “Shrouded in Shadows” Vivian and Midge sing a message of solidarity to the alienated and bullied using oft-too-familiar high school scenarios as a backdrop. The track empathetically addresses the issue with sensitivity while maintaining ShiSho’s trademark quirk.

Like a favorite coming-of-age film, the song unfolds with dark yet authentic geeky warmth. It holds appeal for fans of Daniel Johnston, Kimya Dawson, The Blow, Camera Obscura, and the Sarah Records crowd.

“Shrouded in Shadows tackles bullying from a sympathetic outsider’s point of view with gawky charm.” says music journalist, Nikki Delamotte, “An ode to a fellow classmate rife with total pubescent recall – ‘I’m sorry that they said those things about you changing in the locker room,’ ‘In art class they made fun of you because the only way you know how to draw is anime,’ ‘I know why you sit alone at lunch’ ‘Shrouded’ is innocent, but never juvenile, and in essence the stuff folk-punk heroines are made of.”

Music writer, Ken Sears praises ShiSho for “capturing adolescent angst and awkwardness perfectly.”

Adam Spektor of Tour Volume says, “The balance of humorous references to fan fiction and equine birth with poignant asides, recalls They Might Be Giants at their funny-sad best.”

“Shrouded in Shadows” was produced by “Phantom Farmer” at The Green Lodge Studio in Nashville, Tennessee. The track is the second single from “The Sisters EP,” released on ShiSho’s own independent imprint, Magnetic Bunny Arts, available at iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp.
