Shadow Monster is the Bushwick, Brooklyn-based duo of Gillian Visco and John Swanson who play a potent sort of grunge-inflected indie rock. With heavy lyrical themes dealing with loss, depression, and isolation, there’s a tension just under the surface of their music that explodes into a cathartic big-riffed, hair-whipping frenzy. They visited us at Serious Business Music in Brooklyn earlier this year and now we present this second video from their session with us. Punching Bag is out now from Dadstache Records. Watch our previous video for Shadow Monster’s “Goodwill” and listen to the audio podcast from their session.
