Marko Segura When I first saw 'Those Shadow People' band picture homage to Gorillaz' Demon Days (one of my favorite albums ever), I was like: I have to listen this!
Once I get into it, I found exquisite instrumentation, catchy melodies, great voices and also a digital comic book?
I have to say I am impressed, because is not an album, but a soundtrack to the comic book included.
Those Shadow People produces total acoustic and visual art masterpieces.
A must-have if you like Damon Albarn, Radiohead, Unkle. Favorite track: Give It Up.

Bree Morcroft I love a band who goes beyond the standard release. Artwork is always something that grabs me, a nice cover here, but the addition of a comic book too? I'm in! Musically, this is a catchy set of easy listening tunes that have been well crafted & are quite intricate. Not just a single + filler type effort, all songs on here push a strong case for the lead. Put it on at your next gathering, it'll be background music that steals the conversation. Gets better each listen too, give it a few runs. Favorite track: When the Lights Go Out.

Bradley Rust A mixing pot of sounds blend together nicely for these three tasty tracks (and a cool little remix). You'll be hard pressed to pigeonhole the sound, which is always good. The genre hopping keeps you interested throughout. Even a few listens in, I'm still finding new things. The production is great, various instruments all sitting just right in the mix. Give it some volume to really hear the effort put in recording these tracks. The hook in 'Give It Up' got me right away, a definite highlight. Favorite track: Give It Up.

Track Name: When the Lights Go Out
Red sun glowing
Blue moon showing
I don't even know what's gonna happen when we're not around

Black hole growing
Winds keep blowing
I don't wanna see what's gonna happen when we turn around

Can you still see me now
When the lights go out?
Can you still see me, will you still know me
When the lights go out?
x 2

Black moon growing
Bright lights showing
I don't even know what's gonna happen when we do it all

Do yo pupils open?
Mouth closed but showing
No one even knows what's gonna happen when we do it now

Can you still see me now
When the lights go out?
Can you still see me, will you still know me
When the lights go out?
x 2
Track Name: Give It Up
The Darkness in the sky, isn't what it seems to be.
The demons and the lies haunt me in my dreams
Give them what they want, they'll show you what's beyond the screen
A vision of your life, illusion of reality

Those secrets you know
you're gonna have to give em up (give it up)
but you and I know that it's never gonna be enough (be enough)
Track Name: Searching
Been searching, searching through my mind
for answers I thought I’d never find

Waited my whole life
to see with my own eyes

Is this just a dream?
I find it hard to decide

Why would I do what I do
if it wasn’t for you?
(you know it’s not right, it’s not right)
You know I do what I do
it was only for you
(you know it’s not right, it’s not right) x2

Been searching, searching for so long
These feelings, are they right or are they wrong?

Try to find the truth
more trouble comes down on me

Only in the dark,
you will find so many things

Why would I do what I do
if it wasn’t for you?
(you know it’s not right, it’s not right)
You know I do what I do
it was only for you
(how could you?)

Why would I do what I do
if it wasn’t for you?
(you know it’s not right, it’s not right)
You know I do what I do
it was only for you
(no no no no)
