 Hidden Gem: Shadows on Stars *new wave/pop/punk rock/hip hopShadows On Stars, represented by the same guy managing Moxie Black are a catchy genre-blending duo from Portland, Oregon. Here’s what their manager told me about the band:

Shadows On Stars is an indie pop/rock duo from Portland, Oregon consisting of Brian Vincent and Randa Leigh. With their genre defying tracks meandering from Pop to hip-hop to new wave, Shadows On Stars have evolved creativity to a point where classifications are a thing of the past, and listeners are jumping on board. In fact, they wrote to the Internets, “We don’t really give a fuck. You can focus on genre-fying us and we’ll just focus on making good music.”

By inserting new wave, pop, punk rock, and hip-hop flavor into their catchy, upbeat tracks, they capture the spirit of modern day genre-blending perfectly. They could probably get by on style alone, but the strength of the work really lies in the songwriting. SOS has melodies that stick to the music section of your brain like chewed up pink bubblegum, but they also work with drums and bass lines that could be thrown into a hip-hop song and effortless, brazen delivery that every good punk rocker strives to nail down.

Listen and download the three tracks Shadows On Stars has released so far. These three tracks are off their LP, which you comes out early 2012.
