Shy Hunters Wish to Fly on New Album

Brooklyn avant-dream pop trio Shy Hunters have announced that they will release their debut album O That I Had Wings on February 18.

“It’s about struggling to get out from under the thumb of the past, and the loneliness of being haunted by demons that no one else seems to be able to see.  “I guess it’s not really a party record, but it sounds like a party to me,” vocalist/guitarist Indigo Street said about the album’s nine tracks that explore the light, dark and the thin membrane separating the two.

To celebrate, they’ve shared a free stream/download of the track ‘Echoes’ via Magnet magazine.

Street and Sam Levin met in 2009, playing in a noise band. They also held worked as supporting musicians for Yoko Ono, Jolie Holland, Marc Ribot, Jeffrey Lewis, Jim White, Greg Saunier, and R. Stevie Moore to name a few. They met R. Stevie Moore and decided it was time to strike out on their own after being crammed into a van like sardines.
