“Jailbird” by Shells – A Song Review

    With a contrast between the lyrical message and instrumental support, Shells released “Jailbird.” Lyrically, the song is centered around a typically low point, namely a relationship breakup. In comparison, the instruments live in upper frequencies. Tales of a breakup are well suited for the cello. No cellos in “Jailbird.” The featured instrument is the harp, which is better suited for the angelic messaging. Separating the voices from the lyrics they carry, angelic becomes an appropriate description. Shells' use of voice quiver and the backing vocals are pure and innocent, even while claiming:
All I know is I won’t grow,
Being captive to your control.” 

     Shells is scheduled to release an EP on November 25, 2016. The EP will be entitlesd “SHAPES.”
