Shields

Since forming in Los Angeles in 2005, Shields have created a uniquely vivid offshoot of the 1990s’ ‘Shoegaze’ sound (My Bloody Valentine, Swervedriver, Ride etc.,) focusing on accessible melody and song craft rather than burying themselves beneath swirling effects. Always dynamic, Shields juxtapose crystalline lead lines and introspective melodic vocals with vast guitar-drenched barrages of sound fueled by adrenalized drumming.
