Riff: The Internet – “Shadow Dance”

Sep 24, 2013

The way you dance for me/Flashin’ me, all for free/That’s the way I like it baby/So what we do/Is rendezvous/Somewhere where we can meet in private

from Shadow Dance lyrics by The Internet

When Syd falls in love it rocks her to her core. You can almost hear her molecules breaking down to form new bonds. It’s an intertwining dance that for her involves the mind, body and soul. She uses the image of shadow dancing as way of expressing the lust coursing through her veins; [LISTEN].
