New Video: Shields – Miserly

Rating:

While there may be nothing particularly flamboyant about Shields’ music; perfectly robust indie-pop with some interesting harmonies both on guitars and vocally, the video for ‘Miserly’, taken from last year’s ‘Kaleidoscope’ EP lives up to its name somewhat it simplistic depiction of the band rocking out in what could be someone’s attic, with some 50 watt bulbs that look to be on the blink acting as the only source of illumination. Hopefully once the royalties start to come in from the bands’ appearance on Maximo Park’s recently released ‘The National Health remix EP’ and from their current German/London tour, the members may be able to scrape together a few quid to record a more expensive video, or at least get some brighter light bulbs.
