Cure for the Mondays: Sheppard - "Geronimo"

Sheppard - "Geronimo"

Some of us never get tired of playing in cardboard boxes.

Pairing boldly atmospheric instrumentation with dynamic vocals, the music of the Australian band Sheppard lends itself to fond comparisons to Canada's Walk Off the Earth. Their debut album Bombs Away, released this last summer, saw quick advancement in the Australian music charts. While their latest single Geronimo has gained international attention through network television spots.
Currently finishing off a European tour, the band will be taking a short break only to start 2015 with a run of US dates in support of Meghan Trainor who's All About That Bass has surly drilled its way deep into your Psyche.
