‘Shadows’ forms part of Marshall’s emotionally tumultuous album ‘Layers’. The track builds effortlessly and embraces a euphoric, almost biblical feeling. Vocal treatment harks back to the work of Bon Iver and James Blake, and compliments Marshall’s strong, raw vocals to create an intricate and complex tonal landscape that takes the listener on a journey where euphoria feels interlocked with anguish.
“Most of my melodies have a hooky, pop-style melody, but I pulled away from that a bit by giving them this dark, future-based style beat. And I mixed that with dark, minor-type chords.” – Marshall
