As has become customary for our birthday celebrations, we’re extremely excited to bring you another compilation album featuring the cream of the North East crop.

The album is FREE to download from our Bandcamp page; today, we focus on Shields’ Alive.

Shields – Alive

Shields’ high-octane track, Alive, the second single from their debut album How Can We Fix This? screams ‘get-up-and-go’. The raw emotion and energy of the five-piece is portrayed effortlessly throughout the colossal twists and turns this track has to offer. Alive provides nothing but a refreshing masterclass in precision and execution.

Frontman Luke Elgie said: “This song is about determination and persistence in the face of an adversity. It came about after we did a gig with Crystal Fighters; they had such amazing high energy and it inspired us to write something we could go a bit nuts to on stage.”
