The first time I saw The Shivers was over a year ago at Rockwood Music Hall. I had come to try to get them to play a film festival I was curating. The duo of Keith Zarriello and Jo Schornikow’s unique brand of romantic American music blew me away.
At the end of the set, Keith exclaimed this would be their final show indefinitely. He was leaving New York City in an effort, if I recall correctly, to preserve his love for NYC by returning some day to find it new again. Needless to say, I was bummed. Finding this track today, however, has made it a whole lot better. .
Grab their More LP out on Septmeber 26th in the UK via Fence Records.
