Shades Releases Single "Balloon" Off Upcoming Album
Shades releases “Balloon”, the second single off of their self-released album Common Desire due out July 31, 2015 . Shades builds a soundscape of cool, dark melodies that bring out the very essence of dream pop.
The song title directly reflects noises heard throughout “Balloon.” While recording, the band bought a pack of balloons and captured the sounds of the pops. The sounds of the balloons are seamlessly woven into the chorus and make for an innovative transition. The band explains that, “The main theme for the album is color and how it correlates with each and every song.” This feeling is intensified in the aqueous qualities of “Balloon” that help paint vibrant, colorful pop throughout.
