Unstoppable, undeniable, and absolutely remarkable are three phrases that barely scratch the surface with the dark pop-rockers known as The Shrugs. Their high-energy music layered with thoughtful lyrics and candy-coated vocals will pull you into a head-over-heels romance with this young band from Vancouver, BC Canada.
Capturing a sound that echos of the deep shadows of BC’s coastal waters, and the gritty streets of the Vancouver, The Shrugs perform music that twists the White Stripes up with songs that would put No Doubt to shame. Caitlin Connelly’s vocals soar over the Brandon Johnas’s guitar in every song, while Stephanie Cole on bass drives the listener to crave more of this quartet’s unique sound. – exert from website
It’s quite impossible to come to any conclusion that conflicts with the aforementioned description of The Shrugs. Their rugged, yet refined style jumps off the page and is only shadowed by their energy. “Vindicate” highlights Connelly’s soaring vocals and the group’s dark pop-rock style. The release of “Vindicated” is appropriate timed with the soon-release of their second EP, which will debut in July. Don’t take my word for it.
