Mass Shivers - Ecstatic Eyes Glow Glossy
Label: Pickled Egg
Format: CD


Urgently-paced, but immaculate-sounding indie pop on second album from Chicago trio Mass Shivers

On their second album Chicago trio Mass Shivers rush through a wealth of great ideas and sharply shaped twists whils a touch of genuine pop quality is always present. Outbursts of simplified complexity become well-trimmed song structures of instant appeal. They're pretty loud, yet (very) well focused. They are an orthodox, triangular sounding band perhaps but Mass Shivers prove that guitar, drums and vocals still leave room for new, and excellent, ideas. The title of the eighth track, 'Tense and Anxious' aptly describes the trademark Mass Shivers song. Add to it rolling drums and you have a pleasing and durable formula. Immaculately recorded and produced, the ten songs on 'Ecstatic Eyes Glow Glossy' clock in at under half an hour and are rendered with a fabulous sense of urgency.
