Fronted by Michael Shackelford and Lauren Strain and thrust into widescreen by guitarist David Swatzell, The Grenadines have been making a name for themselves in underground circles, thanks to both a sumptuous live show and the praise from producers such as Andy LeMaster (Bright Eyes, Now It’s Overhead), Jim Eno (Spoon) and Lynn Bridges— all of whom have produced tracks for the band.

The Grenadines – The Grenadines

Release Date: February 19th, 2013

The Grenadines self-titled debut released in February of this year and is pure dream-drenched rock and roll cut through a southern lens. The lead track “Shake” ( produced by Jeffrey Cain – Remy Zero, The Great Book of John, Isidore ) is a taut and slinky disco duet perfect for your Indian Summer dance party. This band tells their tale with a wide spectrum of sounds creating haunting orchestrations and contagious melodies that stick to the subconscious like a recurring dream.

Touring with acts Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley, Jenny and Johnny), Bear in Heaven, White Denim, Maria Taylor, and Orenda Fink (Azure Ray), allows for a confident resume.
Look for them on tour!

The Grenadines – 7″ (Shake/ Colourblind)”

Release Date: November 22nd, 2011



Born equally of bright lights and seedy charm, The Grenadines might be Birmingham, Alabama’s sexiest band.

Fronted by Michael Shackelford and Lauren Strain and thrust into widescreen by guitarist David Swatzell (Wray) and bassist Jesse Phillips (St. Paul and the Broken Bones), The Grenadines have been making a name for themselves in underground circles thanks to both a sumptuous live show and praise from producers Andy Lemaster (Bright Eyes, Now It’s Overhead) and Spoon’s Jim Eno – both of whom have produced tracks for the band.

“Shake” was recorded by Jeffrey Cain (Remy Zero, The Great Book of John, Isidore), at Isidore South especially for this single – the latest in Communicating Vessels 7-inch series. It is backed by “Colourblind” – a moody deep cut from their self-titled debut. 

As with all Communicating Vessels’ 7-inch singles, “Shake” comes complete with a digital download of both sides.
