We’ve always been avid supporters of The Shivas throughout the years, so when news comes our way about a new record, you better bet we’re going to be on board. Dark Thoughts is said to be an album of deep reflection, and the latest single was penned by drummer Kristin Leonard, sharing her story of coming to grips with the various aspects that make up her identity (including asshole TMs); she also happens to be the star of this here video. For me, I love how my world’s collide. I’ve been listening to a lot of doc-wop from the 50s/60s as of late, and there’s definitely a nostalgic bent in this song’s sound, though it’s funneled through the very modern production lens. The band have always had that, which is one of the reasons we’ve always found them endearing here at ATH. Dark Thoughts drops on October 25th via Tender Loving Empire.
