In The Shadow Of The Sun is Dulcinea‘s sophomore album, following 2008’s “The Politics Of Fear”. A theme album about healing, In The Shadow Of The Sun serves as a musical continuum that emphasizes the belief that music and art can be used as a form of therapy. The music, lyrics and artwork deal with a person facing and overcoming various traumatic experiences in life through the pursuit of artistic endeavors and the channeling of those energies into positive experiences.
Mathew Thomas: “Progressing from the electronic and experimental sounds of the previous album, In The Shadow Of The Sun sees us move towards a more organic guitar oriented sound that mixes both alternative rock music with tendencies to go off on experimental tangents. As we embark on a journey towards discovering the darker realms of our subconscious in order to confront, communicate and understand those murky depths of humanity, be assured of some blistering hard rock, engaging lyrics, odd time signatures, ambient soundscapes and emotive musicianship.”
