Eclectic art-pop fourpiece Shaking Chains release their new AA single No More Bets /Joy of Living on 18 December, followed by debut album, Overvalued Ideas, on 29 January 2021.
The album was produced in Manchester by Jim Noir. Shaking Chains’ first single received airplay on BBC6 Music and Radio X, leading to support slots with Manchester band James.
It’s racked up a million views since its release, garnering praise from Vice, Creative Review and BBC News. The Guardian chose the video to lead its feature ‘Innovations that changed music videos’, alongside tracks by Michael Jackson, Peter Gabriel and Run the Jewels.
Shaking Chains have used the recent period of lockdown to finalise their album and develop a clutch of new videos to accompany the release.
