Very few bands make waves in the southwest region. Last time many people heard of anything from this area may have been The Shins. Although it is coincidental that their names are off by a letter their music couldn’t be any more different. Wild ends of the spectrum one band is known for its calm indie hipster feel and the other is an up and coming band with guitar riffs, percussion and bass with dangerous punch, and singing that is not from this era. The Shine is punk, it’s rock, it’s blues, it’s funk, it’s progressive, it’s experimental, it’s borderline metal. It’s just different.
