On the heels of their debut S/T LP, Kansas City, MO’s favorite landlocked surf outfit is pleased to share their video for “Life Is Peachy”. The track is the featured A-Side on their limited edition 7″, aptly titled 45, available digitally now courtesy of High Dive Records followed by a physical vinyl release of the 7″ on August 26, 2014. In anticipation of the limited edition vinyl, the band is sharing the ever-so-clever Christopher Good directed video.
Shy Boys earnestly began as an outlet to escape from their day jobs or an excuse to ditch class. After returning to school in 2011, Collin quickly enlisted brother Kyle Rausch and roommate Konnor Ervin to critique some rough mixes and demos he’d been working on in his free time. Though musicians in their respective fields, Collin had never played guitar, Konnor wasn’t a drummer, and Kyle had never picked up a bass in his life. The response? Fuck it. From the first song it was contagious, energetic and downright sloppy.
They quickly removed the furniture from their house in the city’s artist-heavy midtown to make way for a practice room and DIY performance space. “We had a house show and were basically too lazy to move any of our stuff back in. The shows ended up being cool because they put us close to the people watching us play, literally face-to-face” Collin explains.
