Shambolics, part of the Creation 23 revolution, are a four piece from Dunfermiline. Made up of Lewis McDonald (Vocals/Guitar), Darren Forbes (Vocals/Guitar) Jordan McHatton (Vocals/Bass) and Jake Bain (Vocals/Drums) , they are creating waves with a blend of the La's jangle and straight up rock n roll. They haven't quite hit that magic formula yet but, some things are inevitable.
Here's what they've been up to:
When She Goes Home
Distorting The La's to their Scottish roots, they've created sweet sonic to accompany a tale about carefree spirit. Despite the sumptuous jangle, it's the pitfalls of the protagonist where this songs beauty lies. The hallmarks of Michael Caine as Alfie or Rita Tushingham as Jo (Taste of Honey) permeate the sun kissed sounds to forge a murkier world to delve into.
My Time Is Now
The euphoric glam of Miles Kane's debut combines with the Libs inspired Trampolene. It's the sound of young people making things happen. In age where more and more is being ripped away from them, it's no wonder Shambolics sound so gloriously violent.
