I Hate You

The Shining Twins, actually a 3-piece (with a guitar player named Xanax), are an East Village, NYC punk band who started playing shows just about a year ago. Since then, they've played shows with Adam Green, The Black Keys, Cassie Ramone (of The Vivian Girls), The Lemonheads, Juliana Hatfield, collaborated with Mark Ronson for his new album, and much more. They just finished a new record, "This Is Dumb," which Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes will be producing/mixing in January. The first single "Ave C" will be released in March 2011 on Fat Possum Records. Last year they recorded a 6-song demo called "Come Play With Us," which has garnered them world wide attention. They are currently on tour in Japan, and will be back in The States for Art Basel. Their songs have been on numerous blogs, such as RCRD LBL, Nylon Magazine, Loudvine, and NME. They have been featured in Interview Magazine, Heeb Magazine, Jalouse Magazine, and on many other websites, magazines, and blogs as a band to watch. Often called "the chick Ramones," (nowthissoundisbrave.blogspot.com) or "Jay Reatard's long lost little sisters," (infrasons.blogspot.com) these new riot grrrls are ready to take over the punk scene.
