What do you get when you take the vocalist for one of the country’s hottest rock bands and team him up with two of Australia’s most in demand electro producers? Introducing White Shadows.
Craig Nicholls, frontman of the revered Sydney rock outfit The Vines has teamed up with Pnau and Empire Of The Sun’s Nick Littlemore and Nick’s brother Sam (aka Sam La More) for this new project which is as far away from Craig’s rock roots than you may believe.
The first fruit of the collaboration is ‘Give Up Give Out Give In’. The track was premiered on Triple J just last night and has subsequently made its way to the rest of the country’s media this morning.
Opening with a chorus of beautiful strings, the song soon bursts into a minimalistic electro piece, anchored by Craig’s subtly echoed vocals. It all just works and is entirely likeable.
