Following the release of Play Me Something in January, Italy’s Shonan are back with their new single, Playing with Fire, that’s available through streaming platforms and Bandcamp via Rocketman Records. Both tracks will be part of a new EP coming later in the year where the band have ventured out of their usual sound and played with different influences and approaches.

“We wrote a song that focuses a lot on sonic depth, something warm, enchanting and epic. It’s a crescendo: as the seconds pass, the song gains intensity and power, up to the long instrumental outro. We started off with a slower guitar riff and a velvety groove; then, when it came to conjuring up a finale that could live up to the rest of the tune, we thought of Type O Negative’s outros, and that’s what we set about to do.”
