Bulldozers & butterflies. The Shills walk a fine line between delicate beauty and jolting, body shaking rock. Formed in early 2004, they have been cultivating a sound built from exacting musicianship & creative flexibility. The Shills have just released their self titled debut LP. The ten songs on the album are a diverse and dynamic display of the young band maturing and hitting their stride. Whether the slashing stomp of "Slackjaw America," or the danceable textures of "Big Indifference," The Shills deliver a stand out debut. The Shills draw on a wide range of influences such as The Beatles, Soundgarden, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Jeff Buckley, Queen, Queens of the Stone Age, Pedro The Lion and many more. With a nod to the past The Shills are making accessible yet challenging new sounds. As a live act The Shills have built a solid following throughout the Boston and New York areas. Their passion and precision on stage will draw you in leave a lasting impression.
