Dublin band The Shoos play a headline show in Birmingham after having supported ELO at the Barclaycard Arena last year.

Unashamedly ‘anti-indie’ and mainstream in their approach, The Shoos’ strengths lie in their terrific musicianship, a strong front-man and sharp songwriting. Their self-titled third album (and first in three years) offers an impressive collection of well-constructed tunes in a classic, guitar- based rock style, with an emphasis on memorable melodies and hooks.

They don’t waste any time getting down to business and heady opener, ‘What Are You Crying For’, is a radio-friendly rocker in a Bryan Adams style. The jangly, chugging guitars on ‘Love A
Rebel’ recall Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers at their finest, while also offering hints of the late Glenn Frey’s ‘Smuggler’s Blues’.
