We've loved Shadow Show's retro hip sound ever since 2021's Silhouettes. They had this amazing take on 60's doo wop and garage rock that is purely irresistible. Now they're back with a new single that pushes their retro sound even further. "Aunt Maizy" still has elements of doo wop and garage rock, but there is also a heavy dose of psychedelia hinted at. It's kind of like how Revolver was still rooted in The Beatles' earlier rock and roll based sound but showed that they were about to launch into something brand new. While Shadow Show may still have a retro sound with "Aunt Maizy," they're blending so many sounds together that even though the bases may be sixty or so years old, it's morphed into something brand new.
You can watch the video for "Aunt Maizy" below. Fantasy Now! is due out February 16, and is available for pre-order through Bandcamp. For more on Shadow Show, check out the band's website. Upcoming tour dates are below the video.
