Darkness is always lurking somewhere beneath happiness. In the funk-inspired “Shadow On The Wall,” Ross sings, “I got the gloom, baby, covering me / Cuz you’re a cruel silhouette as could be.” For Video Age, even melancholy sounds like something you can dance to.
Following 2018’s Pop Therapy, songwriting partners Ross and Ray were eager to craft their next statement. Joined by band members and multi-instrumentalists Nick and Duncan, Video Age went back to Ross’ New Orleans home studio to begin work on a new record. “Shadow On The Wall” is the first taste of what’s to come.
"Video Age’s new music is all rubbery grooves with a dusty sheen."
"A glitterball of futuristic pop that is firmly grounded in its early eighties sensibility."

"A regret-fueled dance track, riding the wave of bouncing, bubbling synths."
