“In The Shadow of Our Pale Companion” is an exploration of existential concerns that builds on rhythmic nylon and acoustic guitars and draws inspiration from John and Anderson’s favorite musicians and filmmakers.
Don Anderson unfolds the theme behind the song in an entry to Decibel’s Hall of Fame feature on The Mantle:
Man”s relation to God — or the lack of God — nature, and the overall feeling that life is meaningless, and that hope is a futile project in light of our insignificance in the cosmos.
In an interview with NPR, Don considers Ulver’s masterpiece album Bergtatt, Sergio Leone’s films, and Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s guitar work as notable inspirations for this song.
