don't forget about pac!!!

an up-and-coming band labeled in a hardly unfamiliar indie alternative rock scene, ShyforShy emerges with music that cannot be constrained to a certain "sound." Afterall, lead guitarist manages to fumble with this answer. "A lot of people kind of sit here and go, wait, I don't know what to tell people when they ask how you sound," he says. While audiences search for an answer, lead vocalist/rhythmic guitarist Ryan Martinez delivers a voice that is undeniably reminiscent of Circa Survive's Anthony Green, refurbished with a sugary pop coating, formulating a curious draw. The Seattle-based experimental driven three-piece -- singer Martinez, drummer Matt Ellis, and bassist Sten Johansen -- fuses pop and classic rock as a forefront of their aforementioned undefined sound - all the while indefinitely faring from being painfully generic.

It's been a very long time...
