Shopping - "In Other Words"

Photo by Jenna Foxton
UK band Shopping have a great sound that borrows a lot from 70s post punk bands, but still somehow sound fresh. They have a minimalist and aggressive approach from Gang of Four, but the fun of Devo and The B-52s. Their current single, "In Other Words," starts off with a full minute of nothing but a sparse drum beat that sounds like a drum machine and a single new wave surf guitar, before exploding into a frenzy of simple noise, seemingly without adding instruments. Over this are dueling call and response vocals which create a haunting effect, while still being a fun song you can dance to.

Shopping self-released their first album in the UK. After selling out almost immediately, they signed to FatCat Records to give Consumer Complaints a US release on May 26. Later this year, Shopping will release their follow up album.
