While putting out 7 singles since their formation in 2014, the Grammy-nominated trio always had designs on something bigger.
They just weren’t sure what story they wanted to tell, until a breakthrough moment when they realised their own story was the one worth telling. “The album is about making the album. That’s pretty meta, but that’s why it’s called Shadowboxer. Shadowboxing is all about that preparation - you’re not really fighting anything, but you’re practicing to fight. This is our first big step out as a band and we’re finally putting all this preparation into practice.”
Shadowboxer was written and self-produced over a 3-year period – in living rooms, studios, a garage in inner-city Sydney, and finally a cabin in the Californian mountains. It’s the culmination of a journey that started with a viral hit single and led to high profile collaborations, a Grammy-nomination, ARIA & Billboard charting singles and several major support tours (CHVRCHES, Florence & The Machine, London Grammar, etc). But it’s also an album reflective of everything the band were going through personally & creatively – from mental health to sickness, relationship breakdowns to the ordinary coming-of-age struggles of youth. “Shadowboxer is about acknowledging that we are often our own opponent, and learning to accept our inner shadows – the ones we try so hard to ignore. It’s a record about deciding to lift our gaze from the darkness and acknowledge the light that shapes us".
