Shy Boys Announce Debut Album, Share Free MP3

Kansas City’s Shy Boys have announced that they will release their self-titled debut via High Dive Records on January 21, 2014.

The celebrate, they’re shared a free stream/download of ‘Keeps Me On My Toes’.

“‘Toes’ was written while a girl I was seeing at the time was taking a shower in another room,” Collin Rausch, the bands singer and creative force explained in a statement. “The whole thing came together in that 15 minute window, which kind of makes sense when you listen to it.”

Shy Boys started life as a way for the band’s members to escape their day jobs and skip class. After her returned to school in 2011, Collin recruited his brother Kyle and and roommate Konnor Ervin for input on some demos he had been working on in his spare time. Even though they were musicians, they had never picked up a guitar, bass or played drums. As a result, their music was energetic, contagious and sloppy.

They quickly converted their house into a practice room and performance space.  “We had a house show and were basically too lazy to move any of our stuff back in. The shows ended up being cool because they put us close to the people watching us play, literally face-to-face” Collin explained in a statement.

“We’re all into pop music and vocal groups-quick songs with weird arrangements and choir boy vocals. If a song gets too long we get bored with it. Some things are important to hold on to, everything else isn’t,” he added about the band’s music.
