Don’t Be Shy, Listen To These Boys

21 Dec

 Shy Boys masterfully recreate the sound of the 60’s on their track “Heart Is Mine.”

With drawn out vocals and pitch perfect harmonies, the tune evokes The Zombies in their heyday. A little bit “Time Of The Season” with a slightly foggy and hazy factor of “She’s Not There.” It comes off as a song that could honestly be mistaken for a b side of a Zombies single.

There is a mysterious element to the tune with its slow pace that is both psychedelic and trance-like. It sends listeners to another plane for just under three minutes. If you need to zone out and meditate, get your worries off your mind, this is the perfect song to put on.

While “Heart Is Mine” seems to be heavily influenced by the Zombies style of music, there is also a bit of The Beach Boys to be found here in the lo-fi sound and ease of vocals. In fact, one could say it is the impitome of modern lo-fi music. And while many lo-fi songs do successfully capture the feel of decades past,  Shy Boys do it so authentically and easily. that one wonders if they even realized what a treasure they had created and released onto the world.
