Shopping are a post-punk trio hailing from London. Having formed in the latter days of 2012, they are set to release their debut single, In Other Words on 7″ in June.
The Devil Has The Best Tuna has aptly described Shopping as sounding like “the Gang Of Four stirring it up with the Au Pairs and the Slits”. There is certainly not better summation that comes to mind and ‘In Other Words’ and b-side ‘You Are A Sort (Don’t Call Me)’ are excellent exponents of this standard. This is a catchy and melodic post punk sound driven by groovy basslines, jagged twinkly guitar riffs and yelping vocals; a combination which works ever so well.
The In Other Words 7″ is out June 10th through MÏLK records. You can give both tracks a go below, and I thoroughly recommend TDHTBT‘s blog too, it is a goldmine of musical discoveries.
