Melbourne grunge/pop band Shorts debut EP release "Something Else"

Shorts are a grunge/pop band from Melbourne whose influences include Weezer, Happy Diving, Joyce Manor and Yuck.

They recently recorded their debut EP 'Something Else' with engineer, producer and mix lord Aaron Dobos whose previous work includes The Avalanches, 30 Seconds to Mars and Britney Spears.

Shorts started way back in 2013 when Guitarist Shayne McNeill and vocalist Lachlan Bradford traveled through the states in a worn out, broken down dodge ram. Armed with nothing but an acoustic guitar, the two man band started writing songs inspired by their experience on the road.

Shorts eventually came to formation when long time friend, guitarist/bassist/genius Armarin Saengsri, joined the band in late 2016. Adding some polish and structure Shorts went into the studio to record their debut EP 'Something Else' with producer, engineer and mix lord Aaron Dobos. After laying down the drums for the EP, Mitchell Casey joined the band and as they say, the rest is history.

The first single released was 'Zyka' in April. Check it out on YouTube HERE.
