SXSW Review: Shopping, Latitude 30, March 15


An English trio who just recently released their third album The Official Body, Shopping brought a manic energy and energized the crowd on Thursday night as part of the British Embassy’s showcase.

Featuring a relentless beat and punctuated by Rachel Aggs’ non stop jagged guitar riffs (and endless enthusiasm), Shopping’s live show really highlighted the punchy elements of their post punk sound. I really like the three member’s vocal interplay throughout each song and it really makes the group’s music sound quite fresh, with the highlight being “The Hype,” a song we wrote about a bit earlier in the month.

An enjoyable set.
