"Evidence" by Shields - Brilliant on so many levels

























Evidence by Newcastle (UK) based 5 piece band Shield is brilliant on so many levels. First of all it is a stunning piece of alternative pop, pop being the word to focus on. It has a deep groove, rock edges and (dare I say) a slight boy band aesthetic. At the same time it is a club song that falls into dreamy romantic passages. Secondly, it has a big, big rock sound, commercial rock like Imagine Dragons. Thirdly, the title itself "Evidence"- is perfectly suited for any one of a dozen cop shows or upcoming movies. Fuck, if I were a writer / producer / film company I would put out a movie entitled "Evidence" just to use this song. Like I said, brilliant on so many levels.
