SHUN Release Info

After two years of playing shows and releasing demos, “Nothing Quite As Heavy” is the first proper release for SHUN. The four-piece group hailing from Münster, Germany presents four tracks that combine a whirl of distorted guitars and pounding drums with airy and intricate pop sensibilities. With their influences set in both traditional and newer alternative rock, indie and shoegaze, the band avoids an all too exaggerated use of noise and layers while still easily maintaining a profoundly dreamy atmosphere that should appeal to fans of acts such as Nothing, Newmoon or Turnover. By exploring different notions of the self in its relations to others, SHUN prove with this debut EP that a sense of being can’t be found in a single feeling but exists only in between those moments of weightlessness and the ones that bring you to the floor.
