Not just a great track, but one of those accompanying visual streams that is more of a short movie than a music video. Really impressive; sounds great, feels powerful and optimistic, energetic, yet soft and sensitive in many ways – easy to feel involved in, and pretty compelling on the whole.
Shields are a band based in Newcastle upon Tyne. They appeared to us quite abruptly, as if in a dream, though they’ve been around for quite a while now and are hugely popular within their local scene.We’re extremely excited to hear more from them.
Their brand new album will be released on the 26th of February – there’s a huge launch party planned at Sage, Gateshead – get yourselves down there if you’re nearby. (Or even if you’re not, everybody loves an electro-pop inspired road trip) Find the band on Facebook and Twitter, check out their Website, and grab your copy of the album in just a few weeks time. For now, turn this one up loud. Artistically intriguing, and peacefully chaotic – all the things we love. This is Alive..
