The Shivas

Album: Where Have You Gone To? (US 2008)
CD / Cat. No. WIS-3004

Authentic 60s Psychedelic Rock over the past few years has undergone a strong international revival, and brings up a lot of young but only a few talented bands – THE SHIVAS – are both! These four teenagers present a very remarkable debut album feat. 13 original songs of 69 min. running time –long-but truly a varietive album with interesting surprises to take you on a colourful journey (contains 8p. col. booklet)!

Bandleader Jared Wait-Molyneux presents his ideas of fresh “alive” Sound combined with a (poetical, mystic or political) message through his characteristic vocals, skilful and emotional guitar playing; but also using “exotic” instruments such as Sitar, Dumbek, Congas, Djembe and Mandolin to give it a kind of Beatles “Sgt. Pepper” feeling, but basically you hear on this album influences of Velvet Underground, Doors, Seeds or 13th Floor Elevators.

The song "Love" can be heard on Trip In Time Vol.2 / Psychedelic Rock Reflections and was released in Germany (2007). (For World In Sound insiders: “Seems….history is repeating!” Not just the name, but the artwork and musicians-age remind of the ultra-legendary 60s heavy-psych group MYSTIC SIVA - the Shivas seem to be the closest musical reincarnation too!) – 40 years later – TODAY – is the time to watch out for the new “psychedelic-rock” generation, the Shivas are ready to blow your minds!
