Ondy’s Track of the Week – March 28th: Shop Front Heroes – Curses
Ondy’s Track of the Week from the March 21st #FirstPlays, comes from Wales UK based Shop Front Heroes.
Recorded at Invada Studios, Bristol ‘Curses’ was originally released on Shop Front Heroes debut EP ‘Vices’.
After a remix and some new vocals, ‘Curses’ has been remastered by legendary mastering engineer Pete Maher (Beady Eye, U2, Rolling Stones, Killers)
‘Curses’ is Shop Front Heroes second single and will be released in March 2020.
Shop Front Heroes are a five-piece, original rock band described as an “intelligent bombardment” by Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales. Their style hits you with elements of rock, pop, classic rock and alternative indie, with a taste for the epic and grandiose.
Think hooky songs delivered with integrity and passion, vocals with huge range, power and diversity, glorious three part harmonies, perfectly balanced lead and rhythm guitars that give you everything you want from a rock band and a rhythm section as tight as a tourniquet. Shop Front Heroes state their intentions the same way as they play and write their songs: With passion, honesty and a desire to be heard. #SavingBritishRock
The band are: Stevie Yeomans (Lead Vocals and Piano), Jake Owen (Lead Guitar), Matt Whitehouse (Drums), and Stuart Hill (Bass) Tom Jaques (Guitar and Vocals)
