Von Shakes – “Bohemia” Review

by | Feb 5, 2014 | Punk

“Dirty indie rock from the other side of the pond”

Von Shakes, straight from Dublin, Ireland, recently produced Bohemia, and man, do they kill it on the indie punk stage. Releasing an album that’s heavy in guitar, drums and breakdowns, the band is well on their way to commanding stages around the world.

Sporting a messy sound with fantastically timed drops, vocals and riffs, Bohemia is an album that everyone should definitely have on their shelves. Von Shakes does a fantastic job of producing a rough, garage-like sound.  They do an even better job of fusing that sound with great lyrics and heavy vocals dropped throughout each track to add effect and layering to their music. When listening to the album, images of the band in a pub or bar in Ireland are conjured up, and they are sure to be absolutely killing their tracks live.

Any fan of Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon or the Pixies would regret not having this LP among their favorites.
