The Shivers - "Used To Be"

According to their press release, Queens duo Keith Zarriello and Jo Schornikow of the Shivers spent every last bit of their savings on a trip to Manchester to spend five days recording in an analog studio. While I can't speak for the rest of the album, you can certainly feel the warmth of that recording session on "Used To Be," a track that kicks off with the playful and bright fuzz of an analog synthesizer melody. It's a straightforward track, but in the best kind of way: one that reels you into its warm pop arms from the first sound of Zarriello's raspy and confessional vocals. More, which boasts a fantastically cheerful shot of Schornikow for its album cover, is out on May 10th.
