Exclusive! Stream New EP By Party-Reggae Collective Shanty Only On Louder Than War

London-based party-reggae collective Shanty have just dropped their debut EP, ‘Leave Me Out’ and we’re thrilled to be able to provide you with an exclusive stream of it today.

The band are seven strong and feature everything you’d expect from a nice, slinky contemporary reggae band – horns a plenty, an abundance of bass and chilled rhythms guaranteed to put a smile on your face. The four-track EP is an absolute gem, showcasing a melange of cross influences which range from soul music to electronic music and even hip-hop, all blended with typical reggae swagger and triumphant horns, bouncing baselines, gently reverbing guitars and heart meltingly sweet vocals. In one fell swoop it transports you back to that sizzling summer we most of us enjoyed. It comes as no surprise to learn that they’ve shared the stage with genre-mates The Skints, Prince Fatty and Neville Staple of The Specials – and we expect they probably held their own with ease.

The band have a launch show lined up for this Wednesday 24th September at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen for which you can find full details here.

Their debut EP ‘Leave Me Out’ is out now and available from:

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
