Reliably informed

I’ve kept an eye on Shamu’s output since 2020’s Use Your Voice, and their trajectory has seen them focus in on the chilled sounds of 2021’s Unwound.

Disappear EP features tight production and engaging instrumentals, while thematically the EP reveals some of the band’s most intimate lyrics, especially on opening track Set It Off and the third track This Time Isn’t Real.

For the self-proclaimed rock heads, there are rockier moments throughout. Don’t Assume features a lush, deep guitar solo towards the end of the track, which is an EP highlight, and Stitch Me Up feels more like a return to form for the band thanks to its up-tempo electric energy.
