In order to like the music of Brooklyn's Shy Child, the common man has to ignore the common man's propensity to be a sullen dick. Shy Child is fun, exuberant and unabashed about the keytar. They're also fairly earnest about the keytar, which is much, much better than being ironic about it. It's a real instrument that allows musicians to play a keyboard like a guitar. That isn't that funny. Finally, their Noise Won't Stop album is getting US release on Kill Rock Stars, and "Angel of Mercy" is one of the new songs included that was not on the UK edition. And guess what? It's so raven! If you haven't yet, read our Gen F on Shy Child in the latest issue.
