Chasing Shadows are a four piece pop rock band based in North Wales. Influenced by their favourite bands (such as The Stereophonics, Foo Fighters and Green Day) Chasing Shadows aim to create an upbeat and exciting sound with catchy melodies.
With two EP’s already released (Alive in Wonderland in 2016 and Storytellers in 2017), the band have seen their music reach all corners of the globe, with radio plays in the UK (BBC Radio Wales and local radio) and America as well as in countries as far afield as South Africa and Hong Kong.
The band have over 200 gigs under their belt in the time they have been together, and 2018 was equally as busy as last year, with festival appearances at Formby Festival, Little Dragon Festival (supporting Scouting for Girls) and gigs at the Academy venues across Manchester and Liverpool. They were also selected to play at Indie Music Week Manchester and Focus Wales, which they will also play again in 2019.
The debut LP ‘Alive in Wonderland’ featured the singles ‘Pretty Thing’, ‘Crawling Back to Me’, ‘Burn’ and ‘Paint Me Red’, with the track ‘Broken’ receiving its first air play from Lisa Gwilym (sitting in for Bethan Elfyn) on BBC Radio Wales in January 2017 and ‘Pretty Thing’ before that on BBC Radio Wales Introducing Wales.
The new EP, Darker Days, sees the band return to their rockier roots. ‘Warning Signs’ was released first, with the track receiving placement on IndiMusic TV. ’Hollywood Girl’ and ‘Open Your Eyes’ received plays on BBC Radio Wales Introducing show in 2018. The band were also featured in American music magazine ‘New Music Connection’, where they were classed as ‘ones to watch’.
