Shivery Shakes stand to set themselves apart with their own brand of minimal jangly-pop for a sound that defies genre formulaic tendencies. The band was sewn together by escapism and happenstance by years playing together in the local Austin music scene. Their first releases in 2012 and 2013 were summery pop manifestos on how to party like a beach bum even if you’re landlocked. They broadened their horizons and tightened up their sparkily melodies for their 2015 debut LP Three Waves and a Shake. The album was met with acclaim from national and regional publications, and the band went out on five jaunts across the states on their debut release.

After some time on the road, and some time to refocus, Shivery Shakes began writing songs that took a departure from their initial sound, with fuzzier hooks and darker themes. After a year and a half of working hard in the studio, as well as sharpening their live performances locally, Shivery Shakes have completed their second full-length effort - Weird Weather. The new full-length effort brandishes the same level of musical sensibility, while exploring depths that are as haunting as they are inviting.

Shivery Shakes’ last full-length album ‘Three Waves & A Shake’:

Though it may feel too soon to get nostalgic for summer, the reverb-tinged guitars make it hard not to recall sanguine beach days.
— Consequence of Sound
Their playing abilities and charm are apparent right from the start.
— Austin.com
They’re taking their love of jangly guitar music to a new level.
— Texas Monthly
Shimmery hooks and beach side harmonies await you. There isn’t a bad vibe in sight, the beer is cold and the breeze is mild. Take off your shoes and stay a while. The only downside to Three Waves and a Shake is that the 10 tracks eventually end. Facts of life, man. Unlike a summer romance, though, you never have to say goodbye. Just flip that record over and start it all again.
— Sly Vinyl
Shivery Shakes doesn’t mess around with the lo-fi garage-pop formula, yet the Austin band achieves a rare bittersweet charm.
— Time Out New York
With a single like the one here, we’re anticipating a serious hit. The embodied sounds of the track give us a ’60s take at surf-rock which leaves us feeling like we’re at the beach no matter where we give it a listen.
— Hilly Dilly
Four piece pop machine Shivery Shakes surfs like a revved-up Real Estate with a jangly sampler filled with all the optimism of a summer fling.
— The Austin Chronicle
Their take on retro pop is delightfully developed yet maintains a youthful spirit.
— The Aquarian
Already established as one of the city’s most promising acts, Shivery Shakes solidify that reputation on their debut LP. Standout single “Hold On” boasts a bright, Ventures-like retro vibe and kicks off a lineup of tight, up-tempo beats, breezy ’60s-style harmonies, crunchy reverb and slick surf-pop guitar riffs.
— Austin Monthly
As for keeping summer eternal well into the winter season, sounds like these guys got things right the first time.
— Consider Collective
Austin’s Shivery Shakes are a breath of fresh air — their Three Waves & A Shake delivers a bit of jangle, a bit of twang, a bit of roots rock, a bit of surf, and plenty of reverb and polish.
— When You Motor Away
