The Shafts – Wallflowers
Helsinki’s The Shafts have been producing their particular brand of DIY pop for quite some time and this summer have just released a new full-length called Wallflowers. As their previous efforts, this is a collection of easy-going songs with sweet melodies and clean chimey guitar tones.
The album opens with the excellent Jangle Time, a little pop nugget greatly inspired by sixties pop. Byrds style. As a matter of fact, there’s plenty of classic pop in Wallflowers, with many songs based on a playful sound palette and showcasing a wry sense of humour. Kinks style.
Listen to the whole album below. It’s worth your time.
