A FRESH CHAPTER FOR ONE OF WA’S FINEST
In releasing a brand new cut of music in ‘Fade Away’, Perth’s WAM song of the year nominees Shangrila make an impassioned return for 2019.
Bursting forth from the melodic alt-rock territory they’ve been making themselves more than comfortable and renowned within since the release of 2018’s Love and Leaving EP, Shangrila’s latest shares a snapshot of a band fully in possession of a strong musical identity.
A song that deals with the struggles of mental health issues and the importance of having a support network rallying for one’s growth and healing, ‘Fade Away’ strikes hard with energy and emotion powering the soaring vocal notes of Devyn Jupp, the pulsating rhythms from Ben Ferguson (bass) and Dan Harper (drums) and the urgency of Jackson Macleod and Lyndsay Antica’s guitar work.
THE BAND DYNAMIC CONTINUES TO GROW
With a band history stretching back almost a decade, the evolution of Shangrila is one that has been constant and ever intriguing. Theirs is a sound that has become textured and marked by melodic pop-punk and indie-rock flavours over the last few years, reflecting the band’s shared tastes and strong sense of individualism in style.
Cut from the same WA cloth as the likes of Karnivool, Tired Lion, Shangrila now find themselves occupying space in the same arena as Trophy Eyes, Slowly Slowly and Alexisonfire. One driven by raw emotion and an impulsive and addictive musical delivery.
