There’s nothing quite like a ‘Shins’ song. In their sweetest moments James Mercer and co, manage to channel every great American pop and rock band and still craft something that feels wholly their own. Cementing their status in indie rock royalty with 2001’s debut album ‘Oh, Inverted World’ and its follow-up ‘Chutes Too Narrow’, they continue to hold their own, some fifteen years down the line from that remarkable debut, often armed with little more than a soft, nimble melody that can effortlessly sweep you off your feet. Returning to the scene in 2017, the band release their fifth full-length effort, Heartworms, in March.
