Ladies and gents, get ready. The Crunchy Club #8 Season Finale is just ahead of us. Again we will throw a party at The Old Blue Last in London with some of our finest acts. This Tuesday evening we give to you Shiny Darkly and Lars and The Hands of Light. And this is the season finale of Crunchy Club parties in London, so it will be a show to remember! Be there on May 28th and enjoy!
You all know where you’re spending your Tuesday evening. That’s right – at The Old Blue Last in London with Thee Attacks and Shiny Darkly for Crunchy Club #5. We actually just wanna share this cool poster for the event with you so you can print it out, stare at it during your weekend and look forward to spend an Tuesday evening with some sweet Danish guys.
If you could ever get too much UK-love, this would probably be slightly over the top. But since you can’t and since it’s all very well deserved, let’s pick up on the Shiny Darkly/UK love affair. Read along as The Line of Best Fit and Clash Music write these pretty, pretty (very pretty, yes) words.
“On Shiny Darkly (more darkly than shiny, to be honest) the band goes from the jammed-organ drone and guitar rumble of lead track ‘Into the Shade’, to the yelping assault-on-the-senses of ‘He’s Suicidal’, to the skeletal terror of ‘Diana (Do Drugs)’ with stylish ease, and every moment on the EP is visceral, fresh, and brilliant (…) Copenhagen’s best new band.”
INTRODUCING / THE LINE OF BEST FIT
“Here’s a quick sample. ‘He’s Suicidal’ – a track title which gets straight to the point – opens up with a circular, spiralling guitar riff which is equal parts C86 and Goth. ‘Velocity Girl’ once she’s discovered her fear of heights, Shiny Darkly sit back and let their amplifiers bleed through the stereo.”

Bonus-info: improve your Shiny Darkly knowledge at The Line of Best Fit. There’s an interview. It’ll let you in on all the secrets. It leaves no mystery behind. Actually, you’ll probably feel like you are a part of the band when you finish it. Maybe not. Read it either way. Okay.
