Introducing... The Manic Shine
Feature by Leanne Sherman
THE Manic Shine like to break moulds and push boundaries. They revolutionise genres and change the way we hear music with their aptly named ‘metamorphic rock’; a perfect coupling of heavy guitar blues and futuristic electronic rhythms guided by indie stylings.
It’s progressive rock meets electronica brought together under an umbrella of indie… and it will change your life.
With a diverse mixture of cultures in the band – some members come from Syria, others from Israel – their music possesses a unique influence that comes from their different upbringings and musical backgrounds.
Not only are The Manic Shine diverse in culture and background, they also have a unique mixture of talents and experience under their belts, with guitarist Oz having opened for Megadeath and Reel Big Fish in the past, and drummer Tamir being a multi-instrumentalist with extensive knowledge of classical and jazz music.
The self released debut single Pretend was liked and supported by NME and BBC Introducing’s Tom Robinson. The band has toured as support for the likes of Carl Barat and The Maccabees.
