Faded Shades are back with another marvelous composition that will properly shake your listening apparatus. Second Guessing is an intense garage rock-infused indie rock song that tells the love story of a relationship turned unenjoyable. The composition comes as a sincere statement about love with frustration and vulnerability shining through the melodies. The group conveys the message by emitting powerful four-chord progressions that resemble something that the greats of the indie rock scene would eventually record throughout their careers. However, Faded Shades are not stopping there. Quite the contrary, you may hear a subtle presence of mod or classic punk rock sound pervading through the sophisticated harmonies.
Still, garage rock and indie sound are unquestionably dominant throughout the entire number. Faded Shades combine these two elements in such a unique way, so you’ll get the feeling like you’re listening to a song recorded during the eighties. It seems like the group aims for retro indie rock with a subtle contemporary sound twist, and they undoubtfully succeeded in it. Second Guessing is available on streaming services, such as Spotify.
