The Shins
Darlings of the Indie Pop/Rock scene for years, The Shins were essentially a side project that evolved into Songwriter, James Mercer’s main outlet. The Shins echo back to a simpler era, yet at the same time managed to pump a Folk feel that took them to levels of introspection without being pretentious. Considering that in the well received 2004 Film Garden State, the lead character referenced a song by the Shins will change your life. For many fans of the Shins, they actually did change lives!
