STREAM The Shacks EP

.
When you listen to The Shacks‘ self-titled, debut EP, you might imagine that Shannon Wise and Max Shrager are much older than their respective 18 and 20 years. But when Shannon’s whisper-vocals breeze through the speakers, you hear the youthfulness of their sound which then in turn explains the fearlessness of their songwriting.The Shacks EP was released on October 7 via Big Crown Records.
The Shacks will be at Rex Theater on Saturday, February 25

Both vaguely familiar and completely fresh, The Shacks are one of the most interesting NYC bands to surface in a minute. Since the release of their first single, “Strange Boy,” which they recorded with El Michels Affair, The Shackshave been compared to 90’s indie icons like Mazzy Star, Jesus and Mary Chain, and Broadcast.  As good as those bands are, you wouldn’t find a single one of their records in Max and Shannon’s music collection. All these bands are drinking from the same well, just 20 years apart.

“Wise’s voice belies her age, and with Shrager’s production, this sounds like the early work of a force to be reckoned with”

“The song and video make a case for the compelling power of minimalism and quiet beauty”
