Video Premiere: The Shaker Hymn – Baltic Heart


With the dark and cold evenings started to creep in at rapid pace, Cork five-piece The Shaker Hymn have returned with a suitably titled new single, ‘Baltic Heart’. Taken from their album, Do You Think You’re Clever? the track is a wonderfully produced slice of swooning subtly symphonic throwback pop and – not least in the addition of strings throughout – real testament to the band’s knack for sculpting a song where harmony is at the heart of their craft.

The Shaker Hymn play the following dates in December.

December 2: McGings, Westport
December 3: Tir Na Nog, Cavan
December 11: Kino, Cork (w/ Rozi Plain)
