Single of the Week! Shrines – ‘Glitz and Glamour’

This week Shrines are the band that supply us with the Single of the Week, with their new track ‘Glitz and Glamour‘.

The song kicks of with a really heavy bassline as if it’s going to break into some sort of jazz funk, then the drums and upbeat guitar kick in acheiving a very early 2000’s indie rock sound. This is something the duo were aiming for with their influences coming direct from Arctic Monkeys along with Milburn and The Sherlocks.The song drips with that early Alex Turner and Joe Carnall attitude, with smart one liner quips with them being strung together effortlessly it seems, even being combined with a baritone voice. The chorus is easily gripped, and you can be singing it after only hearing it once.

Overall the song is a really upbeat triumph for the band, this is still the the beginning for the East Midlands band and will be great to hear what they can bring to the table next year, enjoy!
