FEATURES AN EXCLUSiVE iNTERViEW WiTH  MARCUS AND SiMON BENJAMiN OF THE  SHRiMPS AND CUTS FROM THEiR NEW EP
ABSTRACTS AND KEYWORD
!!!

Let's face it. Indie music has come to mean music that is acoustic based and conveys a sense of longing and introspection. The term almost has nothing to do with the fact that the music is coming from a band that isn't signed to a major label. The subtlety of this sound is even used to push goods and services such as PANERA BREAD, SABRA and UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX. Yes, "indie music" has gone the way of "alternative rock" in terms of not meaning anything anymore, so when a duo like THE SHRIMPS is described as such, it does the duo and their music a massive disservice. This isn't introspective music. It's extroverted music! THE SHRIMPS are comprised of the brothers BENAJAMIN, and their musicality is proudly displayed on their new EP ABSTRACTS AND KEYWORDS. MARCUS and SIMON BENJAMIN take their queue from that other English songwriting partnership of LENNON and McCARTNEY and deliver songs that deliver on melody, hook and that punchy lyric that proves to be elusive amongst the greater "indie rock" crowd. If you were to hear these blokes in coffee shop, you'd put your i-phone, stop your conversation with so and so and really give these guys a listen, and in the era of social media, that is really fucking saying something.
