Guess what. If your submission mentions the producer Mike “Spike” Stent, it’s going to grab my attention. Never heard of the guy, you say? You may not know the name, but I guarantee that you’ve heard some of his work: Keane, Muse, Coldplay, and Arcade Fire… do I need to go on? Sheare’s upcoming EP has been executive produced and mixed by Spike Stent, and no surprise really, it’s filled with grandiose, soul tugging songs. The video for Sheare’s single, “Somebody Else”, is a great starting point to get yourself acquainted with the musician’s sound. The visuals take you on an animated journey of a robot, with a View-Master for a head, tangled up in the world of an unraveled cassette tape. It’s a pretty good watch that perfect captures the feel of the song. Keep up with Sheare on Facebook and Twitter, and be on the lookout for the Somebody Else EP on April 16th.
Good news. I just found out that, for the price of a Tweet, you can download my favorite track of Sheare’s, “We Might As Well Be Dreaming“.
