Riff: She & Him – “Shadow Of Love”

May 7, 2013

We were so young, we should’ve known/Love’s as brutal as a broken bone

from Shadow Of Love lyrics by She & Him

Channelling Andy Williams‘ “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” this sombre lounge-pop pastiche wraps up the album’s theme of heartache by focusing on a young love which was far too innocent and naive to foresee the shades of grey which would eventually consume its wall of colour; [LISTEN].
