The Shivas slow things down from their usual jangly-doo-wop surf jams with their newest release, Turn Me On (May 12, 2017).
The 5-track EP opens with a 50s-esque-twist-style duet “Turn Me On” which is impossible to not dance to. The Shivas orchestrate this timeless melody all while conserving the lo-fi surf baseline that they forged in their previous releases, such as in You Know What To Do. Following this tune, The Shivas stick with the romantic undertone hinted by the EP’s title, while decreasing it’s tempo and sound. It’s almost as if “Turn Me On” was the last dance at sunset, and the following four tracks are the after-hour nighttime tunes for the new lovers.
