Watch: The Shaker Hymn – Another One of You


Few Irish bands manage to marry throwback and contemporary quite so convincingly as Cork five-piece The Shaker Hymn. Another earworming effort once more confirming the band’s ear for cunning composition and a killer chorus, their new single ‘Another One of You’ “reflects a deep romanticism often attributed to Dublin, but hidden away in beautiful Cork.” Curious words at a first glance but just one listen to their new single reveals the inner workings of those reflections on personal placement and identity in clear, sublime fashion.

‘Another One of You’ is the third track to be taken from the band’s second album, Do You Think You’re Clever? The video (below) features projected visuals by Colm O’Herlihy.
