Shears

Afterthought (download)

By • Aug 13th, 2021 • Category: Single review

BM is feeling discombobulated today after the shock news that the Welsh Climate Change minister is actually Aphex Twin’s sister – who knew?

Anyway, this new track from Edinburgh’s Shears is quite the catchy electropop banger, with a good chance of being a commercial hit if it gets the right airplay etc.

It has some great vocals, some Dua Lipa via Robyn electro beats which build up gradually, and some optimistic lyrics, despite the title… Could it be the sound of summer?

There’s a nice a cappella section and great double-tracked chorus, and the use of the word “weaponise” is especially satisfying – hope to see this artist out and about live at some point, we can but hope…
