This is the latest single ‘You Keep Me Singing’ from this up and coming band Shirock. Taken from their debut album ‘Everything Burns’(due for release in February 2013). Following up on several successes in America Shirock from Nashville are set to hit the UK later this year with a few single releases and a live tour and are well worth keeping an eye and ear out for. The album was produced by Jay Ruston who has also worked with The Donnas, Everclear, and Cold War Kids to mention a few.
The single has an epic feel to it and would be quite at home played by the likes of U2 or possibly Feeder in Wembley. It’s a fantastic fusion of Indie, Grunge, and Rock with sweeping guitar riffs and thrumming drumbeats. The lyrics are a little loved up and Emo-esk but it’s very well done and adds to the song instead of detracting from it. All in all a very catchy tune and you really have to fight the urge to grab your hairbrush and air guitar along to it! 8.5/10
