Liverpool band SHARDS, freshly signed to Jacaranda Records, release their new single 2020 (I Want To Go Home). Check it out below.
Having racked up support already from BBC 6 Music and support slots with Tim Burgess and Black Honey, Liverpool band Shards come out with their first single for Jacaranda Records. The song, 2020 (I Want To Go Home), is a slice of classic indie. The guitars chime, jangle and soar all at once, as the soft melody floats over the top. It recalls The Charlatans, Echo & The Bunnymen, Lightning Seeds and wraps it all up in a modern slant of lush indie dream pop, setting out their stall well and whetting the appetite for more.
Check out the song below.
