Shades by Árstíðir

“Shades” is by far the darkest song of the bunch here, and fits quite well within our first collection of cover songs. The original song from Icelandic group Árstíðir’s 2011 album, Svefns og vöku skil, is such a wild ride that we couldn’t help but try it ourselves. It heavily features our wonderful six-piece string section, and puts both of our drummers to work as well. There was always much cheer to be heard when we ended this song at rehearsal after its heart-pounding race-to-the-finish ending! Our thanks goes out to Árstíðir for creating such an incredible piece of music.

Table for 26 is a large-scale musical collective from Philadelphia, PA USA, looking to bring the darker side of pop and alternative music to the main stage with six string players, two guitarists, two percussionists, saxophone/flute, bass, keys, and vocals. We’ve selected some great songs to work with, and are always in the studio working on more material! Follow us for more videos, merch, and live show announcements! All licensing acquired through
