Shim
In the Veins
by Katie Sauro
01.28.07

From their frenzied guitar solos to their unremitting swagger, Seattle’s Shim harkens back to the classic rock of yore. That’s right—ball-busting, shit-talking, red-blooded arena rock right here in the indie rock capital of the world, courtesy of a curly-haired quartet from east of the Cascades. Vintage power chords and swelling bravado dominate
In the Veins, especially evident on staunchly macho songs like album opener “Satisfied” and “Man from the Desert,” but, like any good classic rock band, they throw in a few keyboard-addled power ballads to complete the album’s sound. We’re lucky to have a band like Shim in our local scene—no pretentiousness, no bullshit, just pure rock and roll.
