The Shrike – Chase the Sun (Self)

Spread the love


The Shrike is an interesting blend of 80s goth rock and 90s grunge and college rock. While they\’re not gritty enough for my top 10 list I definitely wouldn\’t walk out if I came across them playing at a bar or club. At one point I swore I heard a violin solo. Actually, I DID hear a violin solo. It appears that singer Jamie Lynn Summerfield also plays electric violin. Not since My Dying Bride have I heard this orchestral instrument used in rock music so well. Utilizing unusual melodies and stirring combinations of styles, The Shrike is probably one of the least heavy bands that I can say I actually like. Jim Dodge
