TUNE Shinies - Nothing Like Something Happens Anywhere
Shinies return with new single ‘Nothing Like Something Happens Anywhere’, released on Dirty Bingo Records. It’s lifted from their long-awaited debut album of the same name (release 2nd February).
Borrowing its title from Philip Larkin’s famous poem ‘I Remember, I Remember’, nostalgia, memory, confusion and regret are themes that run deep throughout Shinies debut. The sunrise-through-squinted-eyes drifty narrative of Larkin’s key poem is the perfect backdrop to the swells and swirls of the band’s impressive shoe gaze-pop. Shinies have come along way since their 2012 video for ‘Ennui’ made headlines in the Daily Mail, which saw the band burn alive 90’s TV idol Pat Sharp. The DIY spirit remains but is crafted, executed and expressed better than ever before. MJ of Hookworms produced, and his stamp is understated but important, threading both the narrative and journey of Shinies debut long player. Live dates tbc.
