UK-LOVE FOR SHINY DARKLY by Simone

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.
