10 for 2013: #7 – Shields

They made a music video with sock puppets. Not by dressing them up as animals; they literally made socks their characters and used them to represent their band members. And it was adorable. Was it the reason you lot vote them into the 10 for 2013 list this year? We can’t be sure of course, but they have landed at #7 in our poll. Here’s a short bit from John…

Shields are a band we’ve plugged heavily on TGTF over the last few months, but for good reason of course. We don’t want to waste your time now. You can read our Bands to Watch feature on them here.

The band has been touring heavily over the last year, in a valiant attempt to get their noise heard, recently finished tours with #8 10 for 2013 band To Kill a King and Wintersleep. The band caused some stirs in the musical blogosphere when they bizarrely covered SBTRKT’s anthem ‘Pharaohs’ (watch the video here).

Their debut album is set for release in spring 2013 and if you fancy a finding out a little bit more about the band, why not visit their official Web site.
