South West London four piece The Shantics are a new name already boasting a dedicated following. Having gained fans with social media and shows across London, the four recently signed to indie label Goldun Egg, leading them to today’s release of their debut single, Mind Pop.
The first of their many promised releases has a classic indie rock feel from the start. Building from moody vocals into an infectious riff; Mind Pop has all the potential of a massive debut. It’s energetic, addictive chorus oozes with promise of a band capable of creating pure indie rock pleasure; but that energy lacks across the rest of the track. Mind Pop has the outline of what could be an explosive, addictive piece of indie rock pleasure, and with a little more confidence and energy behind them, The Shantics will certainly be a band to watch this year.
