Shhadows and Small Planets reunite to deliver a cover of Ned’s Atomic Dustbin’s classic track, “Grey Cell Green”. This new release, out via Re:Mission Entertainment, sees both bands blending their distinct sounds to create a shoegaze and darkwave hybrid.

Small Planets, hailing from Los Angeles, bring dark, ethereal music that is reminiscent of Cocteau Twins, The Cure, and Slowdive. Shhadows from their side are based in Denver and bring a blend of darkwave and post-punk witch house influences.

This is the second collaboration between Shhadows & Small Planets. Their previous collaboration was an original track called “E” on the 2022 Shhadow’s album, “Bloodwork”. For their rendition of “Grey Cell Green”, they decided to move away from the punk vibe of the original and instead focus on crafting a slower, more ethereal sound and we quote from their press release: “Transforming ‘Grey Cell Green’ into a shoegaze and darkwave blend was an exciting challenge. We wanted to retain the emotional core of the song while giving it our unique twist.”

The new single is out now. You can download it below from Bandcamp.

And this was the previous collaborative track, “E”.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
