If you’re Tuesday needed a little rock n’ roll doo-wop, look no further than Shannon and the Clams.
Heartbreak can be a real Johnny Rotten. Thankfully we have Oakland trio Shannon & the Clams to sing and rock our way to feeling a tiny bit better or at least, to back us off the ledge of picking up our phones to “check in” and “see how you’re doing.” Their newest single “It’s Too Late” highlights fellow clam Cody Blanchard’s vocals, who sounds wonderfully agonized and tormented without being too sappy. “Its Too Late” sounds like what Johnny Depp’s teen heart throb alter-ego Cry Baby would sing. One teardrop and the girls swoon. You can pick up Shannon and the Clams new album Gone By the Dawn Sept. 11th via Hardly Art.
