Introducing Shangri-Lass – the solo project of Sheffield-based musician and Sister Wives’ bassist, Rose Love. Shangri-Lass makes a striking entrance with her debut Over & Over EP, an off-kilter, 60’s girl-group inspired synth pop record with a brooding punk underbelly. The EP will be released April 28 on Sheffield label, Redundant Span.
Along with the announcement, Shangri-Lass unveils lead single ‘Parallel’. This dark, psych-pop tune is a homage to the saddest, baddest 60’s girl groups; the lyrics’ hopeful yet ultimately doomed yearning is a perfect match for the trippy dream pop surrounding them. Grooving bass and a shuffling drum beat hold down the slightly deranged synth stabs, floaty guitars and a vocal melody that sounds a bit like The Shirelles if they’d grown up in West Yorkshire.
Shangri-Lass shares: “’Parallel’ started out as lyrics written years ago at the beginning of a relationship that started intensely and ended badly, leaving emotional carnage in its wake. It’s about loving someone and wanting to help them but ignoring your gut instinct.”
