SoundCloud, I adore you sometimes. For your help in finding such gems as this one – stunning “Shades” by WOONDS.
The chilled out, down tempo single “Shades” comes from a very talented duo from Roskilde – Michael Kim Hansen and Simon Martin Sandfær. These guys make music that can cover you gently like the most delicate sheets at night.
Turn off the lights, light some candles, lay down and let your imagination go wild! “Shades” is a perfect soundtrack for that. Every beat, every moment of this song creates new emotions. It’s like a catalyst to make the volcano of your thoughts explode. The mix of hope and melancholy is balanced perfectly and really nicely underlined by the soft, gentle vocals. They slightly remind me of Depeche Mode’s ballads sung by Martin Gore, with a little pinch of Beirut’s singing.
As the duo writes on their Facebook page – WOONDS is “two young men trying to conquer the world with deep thoughts and melancholic tunes”. I hope they will continue doing exactly that.
