THIS WEEK-THE SHALLOWS
The Shallows are a 4 piece straight up indie band from London.
The line up is Tom Skelton(songwriter,lead vox and guitar) ,Michael Rendall (songwriter,bass, keys, bv’s.),Russ Cragg(guitar and bv’s) & Timmy Rickard(drums and bv’s)-Gotta love everyone taking some vocal duties:).
They have released a debut e.p –‘About Time Vol.1’ with 2 more e.p’s planned in the near future.
They first came to FOTN’s attention when they submitted their corker of a tune-‘Fairly True’ to our listening post,which resulted in BBC Introducing Mixtape airplay for the same song via our own main man & champion of new music Tom Robinson.
This was recently followed by ‘Honestly’ being voted into our Fresh Faves only the week before last,nice going guys.
I really like what they do and if they can repeatedly produce songs of the quality of ‘Fairly True’ then we will be hearing a lot more of these boys.
They have drive,they have spirit,they are cocky and they make great music.They kick up some noise and leave plenty of dust in their wake.
Word reaches us that they are cutting quite a dash on the live circuit too.Worth checking out on the next couple of dates

We’ve just released out debut EP “About Time Vol.1?. It’s the first instalment of three EPs that we’re hoping to get out before the end of year. Other than that, doing some gigs around London, we’ve got a couple of videos coming up. We’re also back in the studio writing new material, eating some cake, drinking some Ribena.
