From The Band
Debut album THE STATE OF BEING HUMAN by The Shop Window is one big indie pop cake filled with infectious melodies and ingredients that span decades of guitar music, glued together by the unmistakable sound of Carl Mann & Syd Oxlee’s vocal harmonies and a jangly Telecaster!
Fans of Creation records/C86 and early 90s indie will find lots to love within ‘The State Of Being Human’ – the album sounds fresh, with their own approach to the classic sound of indie.
TSOBH is an album you can get lost in and enjoy the journey from start to finish… as albums were once intended to be. Warmth, nostalgia, joy, heartache and love are just some of the emotions likely to embrace you along the way.
