Live Video: The Shivas

photo by Morgen Schuler (view set)

If surf rock is making a comeback with the rise of bands like Seattle’s La Luz, then Portland-based band The Shivas may well be ahead of the curve. Their head-bobbing rhythms and cute, airy background vocals envelope the ears like a warm tropical day. The band can rock, too, like on their song “Stalkin Legs” which begins with the lyrics, “Sitting alone in the afternoon, come on baby, won’t you come home soon!” sung over a pulsing electric guitar lead. The group has charm and moxie and obvious chemistry playing together - their songs are full of changes and delightful moving pieces. See their performance live on KEXP from Doug Fir during Musicfest NW here:
