The Shadowboxers are described by The Nashville Scene as "a harmony-driven, funk-footed quintet, which combines elements of modern pop, '70s-style AM radio folk...and classic R&B." Founding members Scott Schwartz, Matt Lipkins, and Adam Hoffman, along with rhythm section Carlos Enamorado (bass) and Cole McSween (drums), generate a collective voice that is intelligent, soulful, and catchy.
Originally gaining online buzz for their YouTube cover of “Pusher Love Girl” (including massive support from Justin Timberlake himself), The Shadowboxers are quickly building a loyal fan base. They have forged a cohesive sound based on a shared reverence for the strong, taut harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel, D'Angelo, and The Beatles and the rhythmic pop funk of Prince, Michael Jackson, and Earth, Wind & Fire.
Sometimes music is memory. The emotional memory of a songwriter, distilled into a way of viewing the world. Some songwriters are cartographers, mapping an inner landscape of hope and regrets. Each song is an invisible city, populated by ghosts. That is the land, and these are the people, drawn on by Tiny Victories’ songwriter and frontman, Greg Walters.
Tell your ghost to leave me alone—
I can’t sleep no more in my own home.
The surprise is that Tiny Victories’ music is often joyous, even celebratory. Synths and electronic squiggles crash against pounding beats in ecstatic, orgiastic rhythms. Lyrically, though, Tiny Victories' latest album is a compendium of love and loss. The contrast creates rooms of light and shadow (in “Scott & Zelda” or “Systems”) or the oceanic catharsis of a party at the end of the world (“Austin, TX” and “This Revolution”).
Haunts is a statement of purpose—and a point of arrival. The songwriting evolved in a more focused direction, with a tighter structure, building on a bedrock of experimental sonic architecture. Synth lines cut through through the dense underbrush of electronic soundscapes.
Tiny Victories' latest album was produced and mixed by industry veteran Alex Aldi (Passion Pit, Holy Ghost!) and mastered by Chris Gehringer (Yeasayer, Chairlift, Jay-Z).
