In January 2021, The Shang Hi-Los released their debut EP ‘Kick It Like A Wicked Bad Habit’. Its five tracks showcased a great band, often showing a massive potential via the combination of Watts man Dan Kopko and The Downbeat 5’s Jen D’Angora.
They’ve just released a third single from the EP, along with a video clip. Although not quite as catchy as some of The Hi-Los best material, ‘Funeral Home Mint’ carries a big riff, showing all the signs of having Dan Kopko in the driving seat. Fusing power pop harmonies with garage rock riffs, its punchy beats and rockin’ grooves are only a sidestep from Watts in full flow, but every care has been taken to ensure this still sounds like a collaborative effort with Jen offering a forceful, curly vocal. When played loudly, it’s a track that sounds great.
Watch the new video clip below.
