“Garage-surf girl groups once roamed this planet more frequently in years gone by, now presumably retired to Las Vegas or Twin Peaks. So to hear echoes here in 2016, is arguably more of a treat to most than the more manufactured.” (Ed)

“Dreamy, psych-tinged beach-pop … adorned with with surfy tremolo guitar, harmonized oohs and ahhs and a modern indie-pop sheen.” – Paste
“[Shantih Shantih] tie together rock ‘n’ roll together with early rockabilly … If June Carter was in a movie where she shot The Man With No Name, this would be the soundtrack.” – PunkNews
“Groovy, melodic and lustful.” – PureVolume
“Reverbed guitar, militaristic drums and chanted vocals … sounds almost tribal with a psychedelic twist. If Shantih Shantih don’t become famous, at least their music may be used in a Tarantino spaghetti western.” –Surviving the Golden Age
“Shantih Shantih’s multi-part harmonies, dreamy psychedelic riffs and sure-handed beats have won over live audiences both at home and abroad.” – Creative Loafing
“Skirts the line between sun-drenched surf-inspired tunes and psychedelic desert punk reminiscent of classic ’60s pop groups like The Shangri-Las mixed with the raucous garage rock ethos embraced by the likes of The Coathangers.” – Immersive Atlanta
June 1, 2016 — Shantih Shantih recently debuted a new video and single at PunkNews and PureVolume, respectively. PunkNews premiered the video for “Winter In September” praising Shantih Shantih’s ability to “tie together rock ‘n’ roll together with early rockabilly.” PureVolume premiered “Something Else To Drink” calling it, “Groovy, melodic and lustful.” Shantih Shantih’s new record Winter in September is out now on Wild Honey / Dusty Medical Records.
Shantih Shantih is a four-piece band from Atlanta, Ga. Their sound is characterized by hypnotic, knitted vocals and lysergic guitar solos that play over fuzzed-out melodies and mesmerizing beats. Shantih’s rock & roll blends Southern gothic images with rural Italian landscapes, creating vivid yet melancholic narratives. The group consists of the Italian-born Anna Barattin (ex Vermillion Sands) on vocals and rhythm guitar, Julia Furgiuele on drums, Anna Kramer on lead guitar, and Nikki Speake on bass,with the exception of a few songs led by Julia, where instruments are switched.
The band has shared bills with the Black Lips, Gringo Star, Dan Deacon, La Luz, Shannon and the Clams, Crocodiles, Subsonics and Night Beats. They also played SXSW, released a 7-inch (via Italian indie ‘shit music for shit people’), toured Europe, the Eastern United States, played the Atlanta Mess Around Festival, the Intensified Festival in Athens, Ga., the Humanist SK Festival in Paris, and headlined the Indie Grits Festival in Columbia, S.C.
