When Shadowlands’ guitarist of four years announced he was leaving the band for personal reasons, band vocalist and lead songwriter Amy Sabin was grappling with the recent death of a close friend. With the first few songs from third album 003 already underway, she was struggling to find direction with this loss. Enter Amy’s identical twin sister, Angie. Despite performing together as kids, they had never played in a band together, or ever fully considered the idea. Whether through their shared experience, shared DNA, or some other connection, Angie instinctively knew that she was a candidate for the open guitar role. Through a series of late night texts over the vision and shared desire to keep the band alive, Shadowlands was reborn.
The band played one of Portland’s most popular venues just one month after Angie joined, followed by their first Treefort Fest Appearance.
Amy’s music explores anxiety, fear, depression, and isolation. Sabin’s songs sometimes contain moments of joy and subtle irony, a reminder that life can be hopeful and at times requires levity
to persevere. Warm analog synths, shimmery guitar, and intricate rhythms carry you through these emotions made real by Amy’s dynamic voice and heartbreakingly vulnerable lyrics. The
band is rounded out by Amy’s husband Casey Logan on drums and Amy’s “band husband” (she jokes it’s an official title earned after 15+ years playing in bands together), Jesse Elizondo on bass.

I was hooked on these guys' sound with their first release, "New Grave" -- and this album is blowing my mind just on the first listen through! Definitely heavier on the synth and more dance-driven than any of their previous releases and it's outstanding. "Annihilator" and "Breathe" are bound to become timeless dance-floor hits at the clubs, along with the reworking of "Daisy Chain" from the their previous album as a close runner-up. DJ Cyclonus
