Farewell Company – “Shadows”


Out of Nashville, Farewell Company churn out a vintage southern-rock sound. “Shadows” is a track of theirs released today, touting a smoky vocal duet that rides suavely alongside soulful guitar tones. The song cruises along as a restrained southern-rocker for much of the first half, with the approach of 02:30 signaling an extra playfulness in the guitar work alongside a more raucous vocal delivery. A soaring guitar solo helps close the final moments. “Shadows” is a stellar effort from Farewell Company. If you enjoy it, check out their album Waiting on Anything, which released last summer.

Per the band:

“Shadows” is about getting older and moving on without leaving everything behind. The line “I don’t ever wanna leave you here alone” hit home for all of us; especially in chasing a career in music we’ve had to make a lot of personal sacrifices, and this song is a reflection on the hardships we’ve faced and the relationships we struggle to maintain.

“Shadows” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2019’ Spotify playlist.
