Shadow Culture #2 - Psychosoul


I first discovered London based sextet Shadow Culture last August with a live demo track "Demons", a song since removed from their soundcloud but one that introduced a darkly atmospheric sound of slow-building guitarscapes and beautifully evocative vocals.

"Psychosoul" appears to be their first 'proper' release and extends on that beginning perfectly, with ample menace bursting forth amongst soaring, discordant guitar refrains, expansive vocal harmonies and a brilliantly unwinding rhythm section, galloping percussion drives the track forward and before long I'm casting my mind towards the deep, haunting visions of The Cure.
