Shamu – Dive
This is the third artist from the North-East of England we have featured in our ‘Singles of The Week’ this week. Shamu is, Jonathon Mark Evans and Samuel Riley Hodgson, a two-piece based in Newcastle upon Tyne and ‘Dive’ is their debut single.
‘Dive‘ delivers fresh indie-pop with an addictive electronic edge. The track opens with the hypnotic sound of electronic pulses before the vocal, that appears to grow in confidence as the track unfolds, slowly builds the melody up with the help of some clever percussion. The chorus is big, bright and breezy on the back of soaring vocals together with drums pounding a compelling beat. It’s a fine debut from Shamu and we look forward to hearing more.
