Today seems to be full of spontaneous occurences. We uncharacteristically decided not to wear a coat today (which we obviously paid for later, because it turns out its still a bit fucking cold at night). We had no fewer than 3 spontaneous heated debates and/or arguments at our place of work today. The thing going on in Boston right now is obviously a bit mental, and to a lot of people probably not at all expected. And then we’ve got new guys Shy Nature who just tipped up and surfaced out of nowhere like the bloody guys that they are. Perhaps we should have listened that one time not-too-long-ago when Matt Paisley turned up to what would later prove to be one of the last Club Killing Moons to take place at The Bull & Gate. He was drinking whisky. Martyn of Fierce Panda and Club Fandango fame joined in. We were whining about something for a long time, we remember, most likely about a girl. We’re 99% sure Matt Paisley mentioned the words Shy Nature in the aforementioned scenario, but we honestly thought the next day he was more describing us as a person rather than an actual band. It turns out we couldn’t be more wrong. In that they are a band. A band that likes to make upbeatish and sparkly guitar music that sounds like The Walkmen doing Dan Croll doing The Strokes doing Beach Boys, and in tandem with that they pen lyrics about growing up in your twenties. It sounds like the kinda shit that Matt Paisley would be involved in. Be that as it may, this is an excellent debut effort from one of the strongest-looking bunch we’ve seen in quite some time. Two bits of additional good news come in the form of firstly learning that Deadly Sin will be released on 13th May in some kinda form; and secondly that they will play a gig on 17th May at Old Blue Last (and we’ll make a bet with you that’s for the ever-on-it Fan The Fire dudes). Righteous.
