The original band formed in Essex in the early 80’s and eventually became famous for their dramatic kind of synth-pop. Their music has been loved by the masses, and this song – included on their 1987 album – was one of many singles that climbed the charts around the world. It’s about an odd sort of romance.
The Shadow artist’s music has a similar dark and haunting vibe to it, though you won’t find her hanging around in caves – regardless of what her stage name implies.
The 5 O’Clock Shadow is presented by Flying Dog Brewery.
