SHHH…APES! ‘PAINKILLER’: “GOOSEBUMPY REALMS…A HYPERBALLAD”
Shhh…Apes! share their stunning debut single ‘Painkille’r, released via Cardiff label Music Box in Oct and taken from their EP ‘The Shape Of Apes To Come’.
‘Painkiller’ opens the EP, chopping up keyboards into a cluster of glitchy rhythms before Mark’s vocals arrive and transport the song into goosebumpy realms – a “hyperballad”…
Although Shhh… Apes! started as Mark Foley’s project (Mark is one of the busiest people in Welsh music), each member stamps their personality on this sonically unique, rich and emotionally intense work.
Shhh… Apes! are completed by Andrew Plain, Stuart Michel, Jonathan Rees, Lewis Griffiths and Lianne Francis.
