Standing in the venn diagram of several overlapping sub-genres the Cambridge, MA based Shy Curves feature the crushing sheets of droning reverb of Shoegaze, the hushed and completetive tempo of slowcore and the all-consuming genre tag of wistful and melancholy guitar based music everywhere – emo. Straddling these lines and bleeding into one another has created an utterly compelling combination of loud / quiet, heavy / soft often within the same breath. This is some straight up Ivy League emo.
