Shambolics are a 4 piece ‘Dreamy Rock & Roll’ band inspired by the best guitar based music from the 50s onwards. Taking influence from all sorts of genres Shambolics base themselves on 1960’s phsycedelia, 1970’s harmonies, 1980’s clean guitar chimes and 1990’s melodic anthems.
Breaking out of the Fife scene and quickly accruing a burgeoning and passionately devoted fanbase across wider Scotland, the band scooped the 2017 SAMA Award for ‘Best Rock/Alternative Act’ and have continued on an upwards trajectory ever since. From earning critical acclaim from press tastemakers including BBC Scotland (Vic Galloway), This Feeling, Radio X, Virgin Radio (Edith Bowman) & Fred Perry Subculture, to sharing huge stages with the likes of The Sherlocks & The View performing at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Isle of Wight Festival, Tramlines Festival and Reading&Leeds Festival; Shambolics glitter with all the hallmarks of a band destined for greatness.
In 2019, Shambolic’s ascent continues with the band tallying-up in excess of 250,000 Spotify plays for infectious recent demo “When She Goes Home” and count unforgettable SOLD OUT shows at some of Scotland’s most legendary gig spaces including Glasgow’s King Tuts and Edinburgh’s Mash House among their achievements.
With a series of major festival appearances to look forward to over the Summer, this is just the beginning. Watch this space for new music from Shambolics in due course…
