"Single Review: Shadowgame - Burn The Ground"

This side project for two members of Melbourne’s mighty Engine Three Seven released an excellent debut single a few months back, entitled Restless, and a very neat, catchy little tune it was. Ripe for Triple J airplay and ready to appeal to a potentially very broad audience.
They have followed up with a second single Burn the Ground, which offers something a little edgier and more up tempo this time round, although just as engaging. It’s a nice big fat groove based on an almost jazzy chord progression, with impassioned vocals over the top, great drumming and guitar work and subtle but strong harmonies in the chorus. And the production sounds sweet.
Again it has hit potential written all over it. Soon I’m going to grow a little weary of single songs and start to yearn an album, or at the very least an EP, from this very promising new unit. - Buzz Magazine


"Single Review: Shadowgame – Restless"

Two members of Melbourne’s awesome Engine 37, bassist Aryn (who takes guitar and vocal duties here) and drummer Shane, have themselves an extremely catchy and appealing side project on the go here. Formerly called ‘Sir Apples’, the band have wisely changed their name, and given us this teaser single, apparently the first single from a debut album to be released sometime in 2012.
‘Restless’ is an intoxicating tune, a mid paced indie/alternative rock track with dark, subtle but memorable melody. It’s close enough to the Engine 37 vibe to appeal to that band’s many fans, but far enough away to have its own identity. The musicianship is as strong as you’d imagine from a band with such a pedigree, and production wise, it sounds absolutely sweet.
This first single does exactly what first singles are supposed to do, ie. it really whets the appetite for what’s to follow. Bring on the album. 3 and a half stars. - Buzz Magazine

Bio

Shadowgame are a 3-piece rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Listen to their tracks and they’ll pull you back to the grungy, dirty days of skateboards and chuck taylors, of stoners and dreamers. Yet somehow they reek of a modern melancholy that strokes the heartstrings. The sort of musical emergence brought about by a post-pubescent melodic haze. Each song grabs at your past, cradles it and then violently flings you forward until you can feel the rebellious strides of your teenage self all over again. Inventive melodies that are original, catchy and deeply textured. Decorations on lyrics that are thoughtfully pained and bittersweet. An intelligent mix of blues, grunge and modern rock.

The band are currently working on their debut record, due out later this year. The first two singles are available for free at www.shadowgame.bandcamp.com
