Ready your hands to CLAPCLAPCLAP! for IV of Spades’ The Sweet Shadow Tour!
Buckle up Spaders! IV of Spades is set to kick off the first leg of their tour in Iloilo this weekend! Who’s excited?!
Rising amidst controversies
IV of Spades will always carry with their name a mystery. From Unique leaving the group to several issues spreading online about the remaining members, the band always seem to have the word “controversial” tailing them. We can only wish for all the former and current members’ success, of course, seeing that they went separate ways and both pursued the music, still. But this tour shows the band is still doing what they love doing, what they came here to do in the first place, and that’s to play music. These boys are just friends bound by their love for the past, and it manifested and still manifests in the music they make. This being said, The Sweet Shadow Tour is definitely something to watch out for!
Sweet Shadow is a song from IV of Spades‘ latest album ‘CLAPCLAPCLAP!‘ and is where the tour name is based off. In this album, the band did away from the funk-rock style of music that they were originally known for, and took on some other influences such as alternative rock. While all their first tracks before this album were reminiscent of the past Pinoy eras, ‘CLAPCLAPCLAP!’ is a much darker collection. Most of the songs were hazy. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the songs in this album, but all I can say is that, from the album cover to the lyrics, it came to me as a struggle to find one’s place, or where one belongs. And I think this is what makes IV of Spades all the more relatable, you get to thinking that somehow, behind all the fame and glamour, they are like all of us, too.
