Mental Shift is a Female Fronted Rock-band from the Netherlands! Their sound has been described as similar to Skunk Anansie, Kate Bush, Placebo, The Gathering and Within Temptation.
While alternative in its core, the different musical backgrounds of the musicians result in a mix of influences from pop, metal and indie.
The songs are mostly mid tempo and supported by heavy riffs, high pitched vocals, accessible melodies with a solid base of drums and bass which leads to the accessible, melodic, alternative rock of Mental Shift, sometimes rap or grunt.
Mental Shift shows are lively, theatrical and filled with humor. The band celebrated their second anniversary in September 2018. The band has accomplished a lot in their first years and builds on this foundation to expand their activities.
In summer 2018 their debut album ‘Emergence’ was recorded in the Netherlands at Rockinc. Recording and released on label ‘Snakebite records’ in November 2018. The album was produced by most respected producer and musician Joss Mennen (Zinatra and Mennen).
Mental Shift hits the stage regularly, live clips are available on YouTube. A repertoire of over 30+ self written songs has been build which allows the band to play evening filling performances.
