"Contact's 'Fascination Shadow' Is a Synth-Pop Blast"

We’ve long been fans of Young London around here, the Boston-based electro-pop group behind such hook-heavy party tracks as “Call My Name (Tonight),” Fortunately, a recent name change to Contact finds the razor-sharp pop sensibilities and synth-driven danceability still intact, as evidenced by their new video for “Fascination Shadow.” The video, directed by Zakk Bates, “is a dramatization of “the ever-gnawing human impulse, temptation,” they tell us.

“‘Fascination Shadow’ is a song about temptation,” Sarah Graziani explains. “I think that everyone has their own skeletons in the closet that try to creep out from time to time. This song is about the power of our darkest desires and the things we’ll do to keep them at bay.”

“We had a ton of fun shooting this video. We shot it all in one day in an empty dance studio,” Matt Rhoades adds. “Everyone was filmed by themselves, so to see how Zakk edited us all together was insane. Zakk is a VFX genius and he really got into the concept of everyone having skeletons in their closets. We can’t
wait to work with him again.” - BULLETT Media


On first listen, it’s easy to hear the underlying theme of temptation, especially in the highly-addictive line that ends the song, ‘I can’t help myself.’ “This song is about the power of our darkest desires and the things we’ll do to keep them at bay,” says Graziani.
As a single piece to the overall album — an album that the band says is helping them find out who they are — ‘Fascination Shadow’ is simply part of the musical journey created by Contact. Graziani’s vocals and energy rip through the speakers thanks to the foundation built by guitarist Matt Rhoads, drummer Jay Jepson and master-of-the-synthesizers Aaron Shelton.

Fascination Shadow (Single)

Sleepwalk Into The Dark LP (Release TBD)



Boston-based group Contact, which fuses both alternative and electronic elements in fluid, seamless and unforgettable fashion, is the musical partnership and collaboration between two very different artists: vocalist/keyboardist/pianist Sarah Graziani and guitarist/vocalist/producer Matt Rhoades. They came together in serendipitous, "meant to be" fashion and will release their debut, Sleepwalk Into The Dark.

 Ultimately, the album is Contact's attempt to find out who they are as a band. It is part of the process of musical self-discovery, and it's a journey on which fans are invited.  Letting go, as well as embracing their love of different artists, is what makes Contact as an entity so unique and able to fearlessly walk a tightrope between genres without a net and without pledging allegiance to one singular sound or style.

At the end of the day, Contact's music is a journey and not a destination. It's about the process and about the pursuit of mastering songcraft. That's what makes Sleepwalk Into The Dark such a thrilling ride. Hop in and ride sidecar. You won't be disappointed.
