The Shivas: You Know What To Do

Reverb more reverb and then some fuzz. Portland, OR quartet The Shivas love reverb. They go back to the heyday of fuzzy garage surf rock on their forthcoming full-length You Know What To Do. They touch base with The Beach Boys, Dick Dale, The Ventures, The Beatles, Motown soul, Modern Lovers, The Cramps, and The Velvet Underground.

This band is tight but loose, with the vocal interaction between songwriter Jared Molyneux and Kristin Leonard giving the songs an instant appeal. Thirty-four minutes of rollicking, gnarly good time lo-fi music.

The Shivas:
Jared Molyneux: guitar, vocals
Rob Mannering: guitar
Kristin Leonard: drums, vocals
Eric Shanafelts: bass
