Shiva and the Hazards garnered a lot of attention following their support slot with Ride across Australia recently – performances that were good enough to result in their new single ‘Revolution Son’ being produced and mixed by Ride front man Mark Gardener.
It’s clear to see what the fuss is about – both live and on record Shiva and the Hazards have an immaculate shoegaze buzz that struts and swaggers with energy and joy. ‘Revolution Son’ layers fuzzy squalling guitars and a veritable incessant rhythmic stomp under the soaring vocals. It shimmers and sparkles with unbridled joy:
This is top quality immersive shoegaze – with a nod of course to the legendary Stone Roses and The Verve but with its own sheen and panache. You can get the single through the normal download/streaming sites here or get a variety of physical bundles here.
