Twist Of Shadows

LP release date March 29, 2024

After two independent albums, in which the term 'Darkwave' was coined to describe their music, Clan Of Xymox (temporarily) became known as simply Xymox and signed with major label Wing/Polygram. The first album after these changes was Twist Of Shadows. Released in 1989 and produced by Peter Walsh (of Simple Minds fame), the album added a crystalline sheen to the still gothic-tinged music. The catchy dance track Obsession was given regular exposure on MTV's underground video show 120 Minutes and became a dance club favorite. The biggest success, on a commercial level, was the single Imagination, which charted on the lower end of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. While the song A Million Things is a dance track very much of its time, Tonight is a beautiful mid-tempo moody number. Craving and In The City continue the driving, dark sounds that could sit comfortably alongside The Cure at their best. Dynamically remastered from original master tapes, Twist Of Shadows is presented in a gatefold jacket and comes on limited edition colored vinyl.
