As previously mentioned, our amigos in Shy Boys have a highly anticipated new album in the works which will be released here shortly via Polyvinyl Records. If you needed more hype to get excited about the album, you need to check out this new pop delight from the band called “Something Sweet”. In a brief two minutes the band has created a nice blend of 60s pop music with something you might hear from middle to late Smiths tracks. Currently it has hit 6 plays for me in the last 12 hours.
Once again, Shy Boys will release Bell House on August 3rd via Polyvinyl Records.
Kansas City based Shy Boys have long been a favorite among most, if not all of the staff here at ATH. The guys have been quiet for a couple of years now, and with the way things go with bands nowadays, it’s nice to hear that they are coming back with new music. As a taste of new material, the band has offered up this playful and quirky new track called “Take the Doggie With Me”. As you might have guessed, it’s about a dog the band members knew who they felt wasn’t getting much love and they want to take the pup with them. We’re all dog lovers here, so of course we love the track, but let’s not ignore the very well executed music. As always, the band is incredibly tight with perfectly timed guitars and an on point chorus. Well done.
