“Shy Around Strangers a new band from NYC who combine thundering bass, chiming guitars, swirling keyboards and smoky whiskey cracked vocals.” This was the line the band sent me as a reference to use in this blog about their album and I really can’t think of any other way to describe this unique New York band. Their self titled EP, which was mastered by the late George Marino (AC/DC’s Highway to Hell, Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet, Coldplay’s A Rush of Blood to the Head and Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs just to name a few), was released this August and it is dark, yet fun and extremely pleasing to the ears thanks to lead singer, Emily Power’s, voice. Think Karen-O meets Shirley Manson and they jam with The Sounds! Check them out for yourself, you can listen to the full album on their site http://shyaroundstrangers.com/ and download their first single for free.
