From Ballarat in Australia emerge Brodie Glen (Drums / Vocals), Simon (Bass / Vocals) and Danny (Guitar / Vocals) who form the alt-rock band The Shorts.
Crank-up the volume, nudge the speakers louder and hit play and The Shorts will make the day seem far better than it did before. There is a burrowing rumble that furrows its way through the speakers as the trio deliver well constructed pieces of music, where bridges sit in natural harmony and spacing.
Frenetic percussion provides The Shorts with the time to extrapolate the concepts in the stringed instruments and any time they stray, a swift bass kick-drum ushers everything back in to line. A snappy four-string skips across the room, frequently on off-beat giving the sound a spring to step, whilst guitar is permitted moments off leash to create the counterpoint to which the lyric expresses a contemptive narrative, delivered in appropriately dismissive scorn.
There is much to enjoy here and word arrives of a further EP – Tankerville – set to be unfurled in June.
