Spotlight: Shiners (24/02/15)

Shiners grew up at the height of Britpop, with their parents' New Wave records on repeat. Although still learning to talk at the time, it had a lasting effect; the impact of these genres has created the sound that Shiners dub 'Britwave'. Having just supported Movie in London, their new track has been shared and it's one to listen to again and again!

'Karma (Is Coming To Get You)' Review:

This new track from Shiners is refreshing, yet you can still hear the influences of Britpop and New Wave music which they bring together to create BritWave. The guitars are reminiscent of 70s pop rock, such as The Kinks, with a steady beat, solid vocals and observational lyrics abut the modern world, coming together to create a wonderful sound that anyone should listen to.
