Shinies grew out of the late night jams of Ric, Adam and Tom in a South Manchester basement, fuelled by a mutual love of loud noises, discordant chords, catchy melodies and cheap cider. Their sound exudes walls of swirling guitars underscored by poppy hooks, relying heavily on melody, drive and frantic rhythms.

Forming in December 2011, Shinies released their debut single 'Shola/Pillow Talk' in April on Dirty Bingo records (also home to releases by Novella, Woman’s Hour and Drop Out Venus). Since then they've recruited the services of Joe Fisher on bass and spent the summer jamming in their basement rehearsal space in Manchester, their sound evolving from its DIY beginnings into a well-honed and emotive sonic assault.
