Sometimes discovering where music is going requires knowing where music has been. With the new wave revival that kicked off with bands like The Killers, Keane and others, pop hook sensibilities began to return to the alternative rock scene.
Just like in 1981 when bands like Duran Duran, The Clash, The Fixx and U2 began to carve out a new musical world out of punk and synth rock of the 70's, there is a new vibe growing from the influences of the post-grunge, alternative, and retro 80's crowds.
With influences that range from A-ha, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Tears For Fears and Depeche Mode in the 80's; Dishwalla, Del Amitri, Goo Goo Dolls, Seal and Tonic in the 90's; and even some Paul Carrack and Daryl Hall & John Oates on the soulful side, DOUBLE SWITCH attempts to blend these influences into a cohesive sound with memorable hooks and lyrics that go beyond the surface.
"Shadows of the Sun" is the first release from the "Poets and Libertines" album.
