New Sounds: Throwing Shade – hashtag IRL

House Of Silk by Throwing Shade

Throwing Shade calls out the “anti-social reality of social media” on new track ‘hashtag IRL’, taken from forthcoming EP House Of Silk.

The leading track is a nod to the internet paradox that is full of digital glitter and contemporary colloquialisms but pervaded by an uncanny emptiness too. The “repetitive, robotic and melancholy vocals” to her “symbolise the relentlessness with which the internet now dictates our lives…our thoughts are watered down to a common denominator of hashtags, selfies and internet-speak acronyms.”

An alluring, playful electronic track that poses very thought-provoking questions.
