Here’s the deal… If you are still sleeping on Kansas City based Shy Boys, you are a crazy person who really needs to take a moment to check out the band’s back catalogue. Once you’ve taken a couple of hours to check out the group’s first two records, come back here and enjoy a slice of this new single called “Talk Loud”. Consider me ever amazed that this band can offer such a commanding performance of vocal harmonies and bright sounds while also being reserved and unassuming. Do yourself a favor and check this one out now!
Shy Boys will be releasing new album Talk Loud on September 25th via Polyvinyl Records.
It’s been a short couple of years since Shy Boys dropped Bell House and reminded everyone just how great a band they are; honestly, I think even as fans of their self-titled LP, even we here at ATH forgot. They’ve got a new record on the way titled Talk Loud, and while this new single has some of that upbeat swing mentality; it also kind of seems like its got something else that will pique your interest altogether. I kind of feel like it’s this amalgam of the band’s penchant for hooks, presented with this sort of 80s cinema soundtrack vibe; I don’t know, maybe part of that is the harmonies and backing vocals. The band claim that the track is them “letting loose and dancing a bit,” so you can’t begrudge them that…better yet, you may as well join them! Talk Loud drops September 25th via Polyvinyl.
