Named after a “hard livin’ Perth roadie” Dave “Shakey” Broadie who was passionate for rock and punk bands, Shakeys are celebrating the release of their current EP White Lightning.
The local band has previously supported The Bonniwells, Warped, Wolfpack and played at events such as WAMi and RTRFM’s Something Brutal. Recorded by The Love Junkies’ Mitch McDonald at the Astor theatre room, the EP’s raw, live-like quality elevates its preciousness. Claire’s nonchalance and lovely “don’t care” attitude is beautifully sequenced by the guitar, at times almost dueting. Lyrics are snappy, just how girls like them when it’s time to relieve the heart.
