Angular pop tunes with a plasticky feel are what Shopping have made their own, and new single Initiative is no different. A jubilant feel underpinned by eighties synths and pulsing beats, it has a belligerent feel that ripples along with a vibrant trajectory.
The band are now four albums in (All Or Nothing is out on February 7th on FatCat Records), and all live in different countries. Despite that, they are as committed and focused as ever. ‘We found ourselves singing about being true to yourself, in an often binary and belligerent digital age, and reclaiming agency when it feels like our personal freedom and privacy is constantly eroding.’
