over a love of loud noises, discordant chords, catchy melodies and cheap cider this Manchester lot make dreamy noise pop with early 90’s nostalgia. The video from their last single see’s them kidnapping Pat Sharp, and setting fire to him before sending him down a river, they have style. September’s Band on the Month, Shinies…

You are our September ‘Band of the Month’…are you throwing a party?

We’re throwing one constant party, sometimes with soft play and a ball pool, sometimes without.

So, for those how dont know, what are you about?

Just a bunch of guys throwing ice cream up a vacuum cleaner. We’re about making sense of a messy situation. Attempting to express the peaks and the troughs, usually through the medium of amplified guitars and a drum kit. Sometimes through expressive dance in multi story car parks in the middle of the night.

What’s been going on over the summer?

We’ve been writing a lot of new stuff. We recorded our debut E.P earlier in the year and it got it’s release into the world in August which was exciting. Basking in the sunshine and moving all our furniture outside and swimming in lakes. Pouring food over each other in the name of art for a music video that should see the light of day pretty soon.

Tell us about your Tangle EP?

We recorded it with MJ of Hookworms fame in Leeds. Who is a total babe. We’re really proud of it. It’s four songs from where we were at at that point in the band and MJ helped us bring them to fuzzy fruition. It’s out now on a sexy frosted white vinyl as well as digital download. It deals with being young, living city and getting spangled basically. It tastes pretty sweet.

Whats the plan this Autumn?

The usual really, poaching squirrels and playing conkers. We’ve got a few dates in September which should be fun, including a London show and South Sea Fest with a load of other great bands as well as a couple of northern dates.

Any new bands round your way that are currently tickling your sonic pallet?

Loads. Probably too many to mention. Spring King are rocking our world at the moment and Mistoa Polsta who will kick your face in. Our bro’s Gorgeous Bully, as well as Temple Songs who have a recent release called ‘Passed Caring’ which is groovy as hell.

Shinies ‘Tangle’ EP is out now…get it here.
