We discovered the guys from the Finnish Shiraz Lane last year when we were approached by their manager for a talk with them during Tuska weekend. After checking out their music, we quickly realized that this band has a lot of potential and a possibly promising career. If you’re into hard rock with quite some touches glam, soul and blues and a shitload of melody and catchiness, you’re at the right address with Shiraz Lane!
The past summer they’ve been working relentlessly to get their second full-length recorded of which they’re promising that it’ll take them to the next level. Today is the day that the first music video of one of their new songs has been released! Bassist Joel got to use his creativeness to make a really impressive and flashy video that goes along with the track Harder to Breathe, which gives us already a hint of the awesomeness their new album will be!
Shiraz Lane had the following to say about the song:
“This song about the anxiety of a choking relationship is one of the first things we started working together when the journey with producer Per Aldeheim was a go. After the first pre-production/songwriting sessions in Stockholm we spent a countless amount of hours at the rehearsal place, tweaking this and the rest of the album towards the shape they eventually ended up in. And it looks like the result will include lots of our best stuff this far. “Harder to Breathe” is straightforward, high quality rock n’ roll. Punchy in your face type of a riff and a slightly haunting, catchy melody. This song is only a tip of the iceberg what comes to the rest of the album, but we’re stoked to let you have it. We can only hope you like it as much as we do! Come see us on European Tour with Brother Firetribe and sing this one along!”
And we can’t agree more: they’re rocking more than ever before! Besides YouTube, you can also find the track on digital music services for streaming and buying like for instance Spotify, to liven up your day and start it in a rocking way… Today also marks the start of their next European tour as support for their country mates of Brother Firetribe. So make sure to check if they come to a town near you so you wouldn’t have to miss out on the rock & roll time of your life:
