Music Review: “Gone By The Dawn” by Shannon and the Clams


TRACK 7

“Gone by the Dawn”

From Shannon and the Clams’ Gone by the Dawn

HARDLY ART

Liner notes: Shannon Shaw channels teen-girl balladeers on this lament, though the topic—lovers parting in early morning—implies an adult perspective.

Behind the music: Singer-bassist Shaw is also a longtime member of Bay Area provocateurs Hunx and His Punx.

Check it out if you like: Retro-modernists Shilpa Ray and Sonny and the Sunsets.
