Another Track from the Shifters

If you weren’t convinced by the first single from The Shifters we shared with you, then perhaps you’ll realize what you’ve been missing with their latest. Listening through again and again, the song works like a polished version of Television Personalities; it employs bits of humor and constant melody. The chorus offers a nice turn in the track, utilizing backing vocals to further entice listeners with pop sensibility. For me, the band’s success (and its on display in this video) is that there’s a sense of enjoyment that seeps through your speakers; you can feel the band having a blast, perhaps leading to you sharing the same sentiment in listening. Have a Cunning Plan is out September 21st via Trouble In Mind.

The Shifters Announce New LP on Trouble in Mind

What!? Another band from Melbourne, Australia that rules? This time the band is The Shifters, and they’ve just announced they’ll be releasing their debut LP via Trouble in Mind Records. Our first listen has this rad bouncing rhythm line with matching guitar cuts jangling to keep the pace; it strangely grips you and never lets go. The subject matter, and accompanying video, seem to be taking a knock on a very ordinary life…which is weird because I’m working now, and then going to the gym…are these guys mocking me!? Doesn’t matter, the song is precisely what’s made the group a hot item; they release Have a Cunning Plan on September 21st.
