About Standing Shadows
Los Angeles, CA
Los Angeles based alt-rock-electro band STANDING SHADOWS combine the attitude of Interpol, the soundscapes and emotion of Radiohead, and the epic percussion and performance of Muse... forming an alternative-electro-rock show that is breathtaking, jaw-dropping, and crowd-rallying.
With over 80 shows under their belts in the last 18 months, Standing Shadows continue to develop and perfect their ever evolving live performance. With smoke machines, strobe lights, live projection video manipulation, and the intensity of a stadium show, Standing Shadows lead the crowd on a musical-visual epic journey with every performance.
"Standing Shadows want to be a big rock band. It’s apparent from every outsized melody and synth-drenched soundscape on the L.A. quartet’s debut album "Five Years of Darkness" (2010), if not from their live show, which is heavy on smoke, strobes and in-your-face volume. Standing Shadows’ electro-rock toggles between Floydian edginess and the hyper-emotional bombast you might hear from the likes of Shiny Toy Guns (though never quite that preening). If they’re going for Muse, they’re headed in the right direction." - Buzzbands.la
