This is not a split album. Shadows is the curious offspring of MoE and The Observatory,
a radiant chase after light and darkness, casting amorphous, illusory paths of Indian
carnatic loops and heavy narcotic gamelan dreams. Containing just three songs, the
album explores a hauntology of sounds, a melange of evocative synths, disembodying
voices, percussion, and a ton of guitars from the most rancorous to the more profound.
Wandering along the length of spaces and in between, Shadows emerges from the
womb of a collective subconscious containing all that is waiting to be manifested.
Serendipitously we play, freed from the mortal coil.
