Pairing diverse strengths to achieve a distinct sound, Shadow Lanes is a collaborative fusion that almost makes too much sense.
Versatile house producer Chris Manik (known to the deep house world as MANIK) teamed up with accomplished engineer Alex Hamadey (aka N’Conduit) to form a band that bridges the gap between nu-disco and indie-pop with seemingly effortless ease.
Sporting a sultry chorus over upbeat bass notes and distant strings, the duo’s debut single is a lush outing that features UK vocalists Eli & Fur and adeptly channels the laidback late summer atmosphere in which it will see release.
Watch the music video’s premiere exclusively on Billboard:
“Sea And Back is about now,” says Manik. “Summer vibes with some synths and washed out guitars on top telling us not to worry about tomorrow or what happened yesterday.”
Despite the nonchalance, Shadow Lanes is off to a strong start.
