THE INDIE ROOMS
If I'm honest, I listened to this band with nearly no expectation what-so-ever, how wrong was I? A new level of wrong, what a unique band Shinobi Ninja are!
The bands biggest claim to fame comes from the fact you might recognise them from their song Rock Hood which was the soundtrack to NBA 2K12, but if, as they were to me, they are unknown to you then be prepared as they are something entirely and completely different. They have created their own genre, which isn't just one genre but a blend of genres, at first listen a standard rock band but then the floodgates open and in flows the electric sound followed by an influx of rap. Yes, so that's a rock/pop/electric/rap band, an undeniably original genre with a very original sound! You should undoubtedly check out them out below:
A brilliantly produced video and a fantastic song. Opening with classic American rock guitar (well after an adorably cute intro), the song then develops to introduce the electric sounding voice before entering into some rap, there really is just so much going on - almost too much - but somehow all the different aspects of the song come together to produce a really interesting sound . I was instantly hooked by this unusual style of music and overall this is a rock- solid song, this is a band worth listening to, give 'What If Times' a listen now!
