Shallow Side are a young band from Alabama who have spent the last five years doing what needs to be done to get their music out there; touring across the USA playing gigs and making fans. The band was brought to my attention by one of our longest standing media contacts in the States and it only took a quick listen to the Ep “One”, which was released on 13th January by Thermal Entertainment, to determine that this was a band worth checking out. The single “Rebel” is included on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 20th January.
