The last we heard of Goldmines' upcoming tape rerelease with Dadstache Records was a thunderous call to live fast and die young. Their second special edition single, "Shadow" is a fuzzy, swirling moment of darkness. The foreboding instrumentals, harsh reverb and vocal cries all back a message of importance, empowering their cries. As band member Mandy Look explained,
"Shadow is about the violence that marginalized people have to deal with on a daily basis, its about those that want to hurt what is different from them because of fear and ignorance. It is about a person that is just trying to keep their head held high and live their life and they feel the world just beating them down."
