Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to The Shop Window. I discovered this band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the atmosphere of their music.
This band’s music has a very modern sound. I really liked the melodies of their songs that always hide fascinating and nostalgic vibes.
The drums push relentlessly and create the right chemistry with the bass, a rhythm section of enviable harmony.
The voice with his unique timbre manages to create, along with the guitars, the right space and the song breathes well.
In some moments, I heard similarities with R.E.M. and in others with Depeche Mode…
a nice mixture I would say.
The chord progression is never banal and manages to continually surprise the listener as The Shop Window pay attention to every nuance and their songs flow well like rivers in flood.
A band that I would absolutely recommend and that seems ready for the masses.
So open your ears and your ‘shop windows’ wide because these guys are coming in with blazing guitars.
Out Of Reach is The Shop Window’s Single Out Now!
Beautiful music for a mature band!
Quote: “Come on 2021, we’ve got this! …. and so the relationship with independent record label Spinout Nuggets begins, with the release of new single ‘Out Of Reach’ available on 7” vinyl. ‘Out Of Reach’ provides three minutes of foot tapping, hip-swinging Jangly/IndiePop. It’s the sound of now bottled up and unleashed. Flip it over and previous digital release ‘Evacuate’ carries this feeling on. With airplay from Gary Crowley and much demand for a physical release … Here it is! There’s a full album on the way for April 2021, coming out on vinyl through Spinout Nuggets and all good digital platforms”.
“What a year 2020 was. Nature pushed the pause button on our million-mile-an-hour lives. ‘Out Of Reach’ is about those moments when you’re trapped in a bubble, lying in bed staring at the ceiling trying to figure out what you really want, whilst the real world rumbles along somewhere outside. It’s that epiphany moment; stepping back from the great chase and realising that everything we really need we may already have”.
