Signed to Cleopatra Records, we are Seven Shadows out of Ft. Lauderdale FL, a 3 piece Electronic Synth-pop band with a slightly darker edge. With the use of various Drum Machines and Synthesizers, we bring a live performance with dance-able and club ready music, while incorporating Guitars, Bass and Vocals for a true live experience. Our influences range from Synth-pop, Dark Wave, New Wave, and Electro-pop, including such artist as Depeche Mode, Sisters of Mercy, OMD, Human League, New Order and NIN.
We wanted to bring back a sort of post millennium Electronic Synth-pop sound; a combination of a great 80’s retro feel, but with a new twist. Some 80’s music was amazing and so much fun, but at times may be seen as a little campy and a outdated. So we put our own spin on this era with just a hint of Dark Wave and Syth-pop elements, while maintaining a mesmerizing groove and dance-able beats. In addition to the retro feel, it is important to us that each of our songs stand out individually and on their own, so our set does not sound like one long song.
There is something for everyone in our music and multiple genres are crossed. The songs can range from a Middle Eastern feel, to an 80’s feel, to an ethereal trip-hop feel, to an industrial feel, all while maintaining an Electronic core and dance-able songs. In addition, we consider each of our shows to be a visual as well as auditory experience, as imagery is very much a part of what we do. We understand the principles of entertaining, marketing, and commercial appeal.
Each member of Seven Shadows has vast writing, recording, performing and touring experience. We have performed at multiple venues and events, but more recently have headlined the Anne Rice Vampire Lestat Ball in New Orleans, Endless Night Ball in Tampa, The Witches Ball in New Orleans, Draculacon in PA, and performed with Tim Skold (from Marilyn Manson and KMFDM).
