The Shaker Hymn are a four-piece alternative rock band from Cork, Ireland. Having known each other since childhood, the quartet started making rudimentary teenage noises back in the midst of 2005.
The catalyst for what would become The Shaker Hymn was a two-month American excursion early in 2012. A remarkable road trip ensued, involving acoustic support slots to Chelsea Crowell, everywhere between New York and Austin, Texas. It was on this trek that brand new, future-embracing songs were crafted; songs that would shortly enter the repertoire of the fledgling Shaker Hymn on the debut album Rascal's Antique.
“…it’s hard to believe that this is a debut; there’s a huge amount of depth and maturity in the songs. Here’s an album to listen to again and again, and discover something new as you become acquainted.”— Dan Hegarty, 2FM
The overriding feel of 2016's Do You Think You're Clever?, is more of a pop sensibility. Take Trophy Child or Sucking It Out, the deft hooks showing that a serious band is at work. There is a sense of glamour to proceedings, fans of Supergrass will be enticed by the nonchalant way that Sherlock spits out the lyrics. While The Shaker Hymn evoke some of the best characteristics of certain 90s guitar bands, this is an intently forward looking outfit whose lyrics reflect the deep romanticism of Ireland.
“Super band with top drawer songs. Believe the hype”— Niall Carver, RTE<br>
