Reliably informed

Shifty Nights‘ nifty new tune, King’s Walk, passionately tells the story of their first rave. As the song begins we travel languidly down the street King’s Walk in Newcastle, building up a sense of anticipation through a repetitive drum-pad beat. We are quickly greeted by tribal chanting and a high hat, just as the 4/4 rhythm finds its feet. Soon this begins to change, with the first breakdown and the addition of rapid, heavy notes on the guitar, giving listeners the intense sensation of being within the rave itself.

Shifty Nights has a “desire to get people on their feet” and King’s Walk certainly lives up to that dream. Guaranteed to have your head nodding, if you aren’t already dancing along to the beat.
