‘Shadow’ is about the balancing of the shadow side of the self. The song also explores the sacred feminine and masculine within us all. It explores having to rise up to meet the challenges of how the worlds’ pressures have compressed this part of humanity and calls for the strength to do so. The video explores some of these ideas with the mirror imagery calling and responding. Its ending signifies the freedom of this kind of release in the final scene.
