The Shivas (Portland, Oregon)
THE SHIVAS are friends and sweethearts who grew up playing music together, coming of age touring around North America. Having played hundreds of shows together just after high school, THE SHIVAS' joy and serious performing chops set them apart from other surf-pop bands in the swarming Portland music scene. Jared Molyneux (guitar, vocals), Kristin Leonard (drums, vocals) and Eric Shanafelt (bass) are tight, precise, and deliciously fun delivering their sweet, reverb-laden hits.
Since 2006 THE SHIVAS have released 5 LPs, two 7” EPs and various short run cassettes. Their most recent release is May 2016’s 7" „I've Had Enough b/w So It Goes“, a headbanging preview of the new material that is to come on their next LP. They have been featured at festivals such as SXSW, Austin Psych Fest and Levitation Vancouver. Recently they headlined Festival The End at Foro Indie Rocks in Mexico City.
THE SHIVAS play unmistakably contemporary music that draws blood lovingly from Cavern/Reeperbahn primitive rock – but THE SHIVAS’ 60s pop acumen accomplishes a feature that others have been aiming at for decades: their grooves make people dance. Like their Burger Records mates THEE OH SEES before them, THE SHIVAS’ sweet harmonies and sun-baked sound harkens back to the origins of surf rock, and are too compelling for the physical senses to refuse.
In this way THE SHIVAS have created their own kind of magic: they give real, and conspicuously absent fun, back to the scene.
