The Shacks

It’s hard to believe this seductively dreamy blend of early rock, vintage soul, and intimately hushed vocals is made by a band whose members are hardly out of high school. That’s the magic of The Shacks, fronted by 20-year-old singer/bassist Shannon Wise and 21-year-old guitarist/producer Max Shrager (who toured with Charles Bradley before he turned 17). Their remarkable – and appropriately titled – debut album Haze sparked a well-deserved buzz. Their cinematic songs play out like the soundtrack to some long lost 16mm film, beckoning you into their grainy, saturated world of analog beauty.
