The Pacers ‘How Will I know’

Shindig! debut the brand new video from London garage scamps THE PACERS


What better way to beat the rigours of the winter weather than holing up in Dalston’s Sausage Studios and laying down the tracks for your sophomore single? Well that’s exactly what The Pacers have done, and the results are hotter than freshly roasted chestnuts. Now that summer is here and the time is right, Psych-A-Rella Records are pleased to present ‘How Will I Know?’ b/w ‘Tired, Beat & Broken’. 

A bright shiny slab of garage-pop-psych with an infectious hook that you’ll be singing in the shower tomorrow for sure.  Alex Friedls unique vocal delivery and chiming rhythm guitar counterfoiled by Harry Stams chopped chords and frantic fretwork all held together with gut thumping bass from Sean Doherty  along with the smash ’n’ crash drums of Jamie Yuan. 

 Those of you not aware of The Pacers, they play music informed by garage-punk and psychedelia as well as indie music of the ’90s, an addictive mix and one of the most exciting live prospects on the London scene right now. 

The single is available to order now from www.psycharella.com at a very reasonable £6.49!

Paul Steel ‘Skydaddy’

We have just discovered PAUL STEEL, and we love his talent. His glossy Wilsonian, sugar coated Musical-intoned pocket symphonies stun. ‘Skydaddy’, taken from the forthcoming Carousel Kites album, gets the Shindig! exclusive


Excessive, irreverent pop made for it’s own sake, Carousel Kites is a psychedelic journey through the highest points of melodic pop sophistication. With nods to Gershwin, The Beatles, Todd Rundgren, The Beach Boys, Burt Bacharach, Phil Spector, The Free Design and The BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

Now residing in Berlin with a fleshed-out live line-up, The Third Sound have just released their fourth album All Tomorrow’s Shadows via London label Fuzz Club.
