Oakland’s favorite doo-wop, punk-infused rock ‘n’ rollers Shannon & the Clams are gearing up to release their latest LP later this month, titled Dreams in the Rat House.
The threesome first gave us a little taste of the new material with the ‘Ozma’ 7” released in August 2012, and now another new song, “Into a Dream”, has emerged via a premiere on Nylon Magazine.
As always, Shannon Shaw’s vocals are magically charismatic, somehow embodying a handpicked bundle of musical eras all at once. Her howls meld with fellow vocalist and guitarist Cody Blanchard, taking us (yup) “Into a Dream” of their new album.
On May 30th, 2013, Shannon & the Clams launch a full month-long U.S. tour, so be sure to catch them live at The New Parish on May 18th, part of 1-2-3-4 Go! Records’ Go!Go! Fest.
