Shadows of a Silhouette – Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time

Alternative indie quartet Shadows Of A Silhouette return with the explosive single ‘Don’t Tempt Me With a Good Time’. Based in Derby, the four-piece are known for their relentless energy, fast-paced tracks, pulsating guitar hooks and prominent lyricism.

Receiving multiple radio play on BBC Introducing across the East Midlands, they also gained BBC Introducing track of the week for their single ‘Number 3’s’. ‘Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time’ highlights itself as the young band going up the ladder even further into their career. Maturing and showcasing a strong essence of independence in this single, fasten your seatbelts lads, you’re about to hit stardom.

An explosive indie anthem that sounds like the beginning of a band that are destined for the big time. Grit-filled vocals, the garage rock meets indie rock single includes a vocal melody that will engrave itself into your mind. Written about the compulsive need of the younger generation to constantly be engulfed by reckless behaviour and rebellion, the track feels like a big middle fingers up to the haters.

The track also mentions that there is only ever one answer to the question ‘do you want to go out tonight?’, and that being ‘go on then’. Drawing heavy influence from the early noughties indie rock scene, the fast-paced number builds up into a mature single. Seeing as there’s obviously going to be room for improvements for anyone, the only thing I could pin-point is that the song’s structure could have been slightly tighter, but that’ll come with time for the band. Overall, it’s a cracking single from the young band, and it’ll definitely tempt you to have a good time in whatever scenario.
