Shades Shine 

Jan. 31, Neurolux


Boise Weekly has been following local band Shades since its debut in 2011, watching its evolution and its contributions to Boise's music scene.

Shades makes dreamy, atmospheric music that its label, Synthemesc Recordings, describes as an "eclectic mix of woozy melodic synths, crunched drums, smooth vocals and sweet vibes." Shades' chillwave sound is not unlike laptop pop, but the band combines high-tech soundmakers with the talents of its four flesh-and-blood humans to create something richer and with more depth.

Shades' page reveals that before a spot at Treefort in March, the band has a couple of shows in the U.K. bookending the Jan. 31 Neurolux gig—yet another reason to keep our gaze on Shades.
