Is It Snowing Today? – The Shifts

For those of you looking for a contemporary indie rock sound that is not dumbed down nor over-compressed in the mix, try giving a listen to “Is It Snowing Today?” by The Shifts.  Fusing sounds of modern indie artists like Modest Mouse with elements reminiscent of mid-era Blink 182, with more complications than a typical late-90s punk rock, the song is quite effective.

The catchiness of the song aside, the interjecting guitar lines and the relatively simple vocal lines punctuate the work nicely, and the “formula” that we all know in pop/rock music is used in a way that is not formulaic (if that paradox makes sense).

Give this track a listen!
