Chasing Shadows are a four-piece rock band from North Wales and Chester, consisting of members Sam Roberts (lead vocals, lead guitar), Ben Etchells-Rimmer (guitar, backing vocals), Russ Pearson (bassist, backing vocals) and Chris Leonard (drums).
Having previously reviewed music by this great band, I was eager to hear more, and Emily, their latest single, was released on 18/08/2023.
Having taken a year to make, the song was recorded at Orange Recording Studios in Penmaenmawr, North Wales, and is the fourth track from the band’s upcoming EP, Horizons.
Emily is a great indie rock song with a pop punk vibe that is guaranteed to get you tapping your foot, at the very least! With melodic guitars that really take it up a notch when the choruses hit, this track has some great hooks that will really captivate the listener and with energetic drum and bass sections, this is a truly catchy song that will stay in your head long after you have finished listening to it.
The vocals are quirky, with a great, upbeat vibe to them and a traditional alternative rock / pop sound. With backups that are in much the same vein, the song has a great depth that really grabs the listener, pulling them into the music, and leaving them wanting more when it comes to an end!
This is a great track, and once again, I look forward with eager ears to anything else this band has to offer in the very near future. Check them out and see what you think for yourself!
