New York-based alternative rock duo, Shakeout, have released their new EP, “Balance The Imbalance,” steaming now on all digital music platforms.
Shakeout’s even-track record is as unique, and complex, as their experimental approach to music - a sonic journey into the mind of one’s self and the balancing of all those emotions against constant friction.
Shakeout’s fourth EP explores themes such as anxiety (“40Mg”), clarity (“Heart”), fear, "(“No More Fear”) and self-reflection & balancing from their lead single “Take Time.” The duo’s emotional opus on “Temporary I and “Temporary II,” as well as their appetite for self-control on “Instincts,” illustrate Shakeout’s depth in their songwriting ability and their bold illusionary repertoire that allures listeners to envision a 4-piece band rather than a two-piece act.
Based in Yonkers, NY, Shakeout is a two-piece experimental rock band that has forged a complex sound through their influences of punk, alternative, pop and hip-hop. Their savvy songwriting approach has brought upon a multitude of sounds that attract fans and listeners from a wide-range of genres.
Formed in 2016 by musicians, A.J. Kay and A.J. Chiarella, Shakeout has primarily focused on music experimentation as their key approach to songwriting, and unique live performances, through their innovative style of creating the illusion of a four-piece band. Their appetite for using various sounds and instruments helps Shakeout to convey this sonic illusion by curating ear-decadent experiences for their audiences and listeners whether on stage or in studio.
The alt-rock duo released the records lead singles earlier this summer with “Take Time” and “Instincts,” receiving positive reviews from various indie-rock publications and features on alt-rock playlists on Spotify. Their music video to “Take Time” has garnered over 19k views since its release in June.
Shakeout will be performing their record release show at Rudy’s in Hartsdale, NY next week ,on August 9th, alongside local/regional pals The Everafter, Maintenance, Keep Flying and Cold Climb It.
