Just a few short hours left until the Shins release ‘The Worms Heart’, a flipped version of their 2017 album ‘Heartworms’. Every track has been reimagined as its opposite and with a couple early releases, it’s shaping up to be an exciting and thoughtfully composed reconstruction.
January 5th saw the delivery of ‘Dead Alive – Flipped’, just as compelling as last years ‘Cherry Hearts – Flipped’. The track’s present soft and classic rock components and more acoustics .
Released last week, the track ‘Heartworms – Flipped’ contains new and enhanced pop characteristics and more subtle differences to its original, unlike the super fun, and glam rock ‘Name For You – Flipped’.
Sporting a new reverse track ordering (and ‘flipped’ artwork) it’ll be interesting to hear how the album flows together. There’s only one way to find out what you think of the new versions though. If you’re a fan of ‘The Shins’, if you loved ‘Heartworms’ or if you just enjoy your indie rock/pop tunes then this is definitely worth a listen.
The jury’s out, who’s ready?
