about

'Holy Roller,' Shiny Around the Edges’ debut, is both jaggedly bleak and crushingly beautiful. Recorded with Matthew J. Barnhart (Shearwater, The New Year) at The Echo Lab deep in the Blackland Prairie of North Texas, 'Holy Roller' serves as a reflection of the band’s wide-ranging musical influences. Taking cues from the ambient noise, jazz, metal, folk, and country records they listen to while living in the fertile music scene of Denton, Texas, Shiny Around the Edges deliver an album boiling with schizophrenic guitar work, pummeling rhythms, and vocals both impassioned and soothing. Features Ed and Josh from Neon Indian.

'HOLY ROLLER' IN THE PRESS...

“...invokes the majesty of Swans at its angriest and most exultant...” ALL MUSIC GUIDE (4 out of 5 Stars)

“We're taken with (their) ability to conjure tumbleweeds and desert space with distortion and velvety vocals...” NBC-DFW

“...if 'Holy Roller' doesn't make you a believer, I don't know what will.” DALLAS OBSERVER

“Shiny distills early Velvet Underground dissonance...” PASTE

“...pummeling and introspective; soothing and apocalyptic.” POPSHIFTER

“Shiny Around The Edges have always struck me as a band more concerned with creating moods than simply writing their songs...” FOXY DIGITALIS
