Sane and the Mad Shadows


THE BAND HISTORY. 1992– Present Day Sane and the Mad Shadowsr first performed in the 1990s under the name blood orange in SW England. from the start they wanted to integrate female harmonies with beautiful melodies and immediate catchy music having gigged for years they broke up, years later they then came back together to record for the simple love of music. this despite the band living in different parts of the United Kingdom; however first they had to change their name, as a new york artist was around called blood orange. the music has grown immensely from the first album empty with catchy melodies and often dark lyrics to the latest opus rozmėry, a synth-driven soundscape, and tribute to David Bowie. The band explores many genres from acoustic pop, synth rock, to pop punk and classic rock and love doing what the hell they want. The band are currently releasing the backlog of albums, recorded but never released and believe me, they are turning out very good as well as recording new music
