Dreams, Schemes & Young Teams
Shambolics are back with their invigorating new single ‘Dreams, Schemes & Young Teams’ via Eggman Records.
Shambolics ignite all of our hopes for the summer with this upbeat single ‘Dreams, Schemes & Young Teams’. Opening with energetic drums, indie guitar riffs, Lewis McDonald’s unmistakable lyrics, and Darren Forbes coming in on lead in the chorus to create an undoubtedly harmonious feel.
The title in itself gives a feeling hope Darren Forbes of Shambolics says of the new single,
“It’s essentially a song of hope…. A song about the ‘young teams’ that want to make it out the schemes and see what out there.“
Forbes explains Interestingly,
“The artwork to the track is a place we all met as teenagers when we were the young team drinking, having a carry on and plan on taking on the world.“
Lewis Mcdonald and Darren Forbes come together to songwrite this single, which was recorded in 7 West studios and Eggman Studios in their hometown of Fife, it was produced by Chris Marshall (Gerry Cinnamon and The Dunts).
The track also showcases new member Scott Williamson on the Keyboard. ‘Dreams, Schemes & Young Teams’ is the first release of 2021 for the band.
Released by Eggman Records, it follows the re-release of single ‘Love Collides’ which is a firm favourite of the fans of the Shams along with another classic of theirs ‘Sandra Speed’.
Whilst lockdown has slowed many down, it’s most definitely done the oppersite with Shambolics, showcasing their talents and putting their own creative spin on covers such as Fleetwood Mac‘s ‘Everywhere’ and The Weeknd‘s ‘Blinding Lights’, not to mention the classic The Rolling Stones ‘Sympathy With The Devil’. They have ignited interest from an ever growing stream of new fans, which is seeing venues such as St Lukes in Glasgow selling out aswell the Water Rats in London.
The band have grown massively in a short space of time, since I watched them play at Phase One in Liverpool 2019 and to be able to do that whilst a global pandemic has put a stop on live music is unreal.
Live performances from the Caves in Edingburgh have certainly kept the fans torch burning and new singles like this that have a festival sing along written all over it means that by the time the Shambolics play TRNSMT this summer they will not be singing alone anymore.
