The Blue Jackets EP
Shadows of the City pays homage to growing up outside of Manhattan. “We’re all from Long Island and familiar with being on the outside looking in,” says Walkley. “It’s about the majestic NYC skyline overshadowing the everyday people in the burbs. Feeling the pull and promise and dreams of New York, trying to make it to the next level, getting a piece of the Island Empire…that’s what we grew up with.”
The Blue Jackets immediately found themselves at home on the radio when Matt Pinhead of MTV and Sirius Radio found himself with an advance copy of the EP. Entranced right off the bat with one of the title track’s intoxicating riffs, Matt has made the song “Who Needs A DJ” a regular spin on his radio show.
