The Shins

The Shins are an American indie rock band that has been making waves since their formation in 1996. The band consists of four members, including James Mercer, the leader and only original member of The Shins. The dreamy instrumentation and Mercer’s mellifluous falsetto are signature features of The Shins songs. The group has released five studio albums to date, beginning with their debut album “Oh, Inverted World” in 2001. The singles from this album helped The Shins gain early success, establishing them as a rising name in the music industry. The following albums pushed The Shins music even further and showcased the band’s unmatched creativity. Most recently in 2017, The Shins dropped their fifth studio album “Heartworms” with Mercer as its primary producer – a testament to his impressive musical talent. Since its inception, The Shins have pioneered some of the most iconic music in modern-day indie rock and remain as relevant as ever before.

Hiring The Shins band for your next event is an ideal way to energize the crowd. With a unique sound that resonates deeply with audiences, they continue to produce chart-topping albums and occupy leading spots at prominent music festivals such as Coachella and Bonnaroo. Having their presence at your occasion can undoubtedly add an extra layer of fun and excitement.
