At the start of December, Shinies were unheard of outside their own living room. They recorded their track Spent Youth and seemed to almost accidentally capture a sound that captured the imagination of every blog around. A whirlwind month later, and they had their debut single recorded – by Rory Atwell, no less – and a 7″ slated for release by Dirty Bingo. Shola/Pillow Talk comes out on April 16th, and you can hear the former now, seductively hinting at a love of The Cribs layered with smatterings of shoegaze.
