Not Aware

Middlewest Fest Preview: Shy Technology

A band the jumped out at me while scrolling and playing through the Middlewest line-up was Shy Technology. This four piece band has been together for awhile, and released their debut ep The Waltz back 2009. However, it was their debut full-length, We The Instruments that has really solidified this band for me. The bands plays an energetic form of indie rock that is slightly dark at times. On my favorite track from their album, "Just Us" they actually remind of a basement version of Interpol.

Shy Technology is a band to watch, and a band to check out at Middlewest when they play on Friday at Otto's Nightclub at 8:10pm.



The Giving Tree Band recently unveiled their music video for "Circles," the single of their forthcoming album The Joke, The Threat & The Obvious.
