Vancouver-based indie rockers the Shilohs have released a new video for their catchy song ‘English Roads,’ and Diffuser.fm is hosting the exclusive premiere. Although the clip tells a rather frustrating story of love gone wrong, its alluring scenery, paired with the tune’s invigorating vocals, make for a thoroughly enjoyable (albeit dreamlike) experience. WATCH ENGLISH ROADS HERE “This is based on a dream I had,” the Shilohs’ Johnny Payne says of the video. “I was walking home drunk, very late at night in Vancouver, and I stumbled upon a couple of young dudes playing basketball. I joined in, shared their red wine, played some horse, but I just couldn’t make a basket. I was throwing up bricks all over the place. Eventually it seemed like they wanted me to leave so I set off into the night … Oh, and I was in love with a girl who didn’t love me.” If you like what you see and want to catch the Shilohs on tour this summer, you’re in luck — they have a series of shows lined up to promote their new record.

Vancouver-based retro rock crew The Shilohs have been sitting on their So Wild LP since 2010, but the album finally arrived today through Light Organ Records. As previously reported, the 12-song set has the quartet "fashioning a fresh set of tunes from obscure melodies and charming riffs culled from a half century of peculiar pop perfection." This includes the '50s AM sweeper "Sister Rose," the jug-band ballad "LA," and the Revolver-era Beatles approach to psych-pop stomp "Airliner Man." The Shilohs play a record release show at Vancouver's Anza Club on February 15. The band might have some new tunes in store for you too, having started work on a new album at Vancouver's Mushroom Studios in December.
