The Shang (Zac Gomes) Performs ‘All For Show’ Live at Enmore

PRESENTED BY 

Emerging from the southwest of Sydney, The Shang has built up a solid fan base in just the last couple of years — amassing hundreds of thousands of streams with a sound that encompasses high energy pop-punk, laid back reggae grooves and everything in between.

In a special solo Live at Enmore session, frontman Zac Gomes performed the band’s latest single, All For Show.

And while the original version of All For Show is an up-tempo anthem, Gomes completely reimagined it for his Live at Enmore performance.

Start Again was Mixed and Recorded by Radi Safi and Owen Penglis

Travelling light, with just his trusty acoustic guitar in tow, Zac Gomes gave All For Show a melancholy transformation, bringing the song’s message to the fore.

Here’s how Zac Gomes described the meaning of the single:

“It’s about miscommunication and the problems within that. The song was written six months ago, but it’s only come out a few weeks ago.”

Capturing vocals and guitar at the same time with separation is a challenge. For the guitar, we went with the versatile and detailed large-diaphragm condenser: AT4050

For the vocal, we went with another AT4050 — the anniversary edition ‘Urushi’ model. Both microphones were set to the Figure 8 pattern and carefully positioned to create separation between the two sound sources.
