Steven White The atmosphere created on The Shadow is just that: like the music follows someone or something, lock-step but independent. Lit but not lit. Someone but not someone. And you get to hear it and be affected by it without who casts the shadow know you're watching. Favorite track: We Want To Give You Some Advice.
