Shiny Penny are a band to notice. They caught the eye of Bon Jovi, who chose to have them as support for the show in Indiana, as part of a competition.
Shiny Penny are Scott “Stix” Ayers (drums), Brad DiCarlo (guitar), Eric Hyman (bass), Dean Schimmelpfennig (vocals), hailing from Kokomo, IN.
They have just released a music video for “Don’t Believe a Word That I Say”, the first single for their upcoming album.
“I’m tired of needing
Something to fill me
Tired of seeking
Something that kills me
I’m tired of wishing for something more
When I know it’s only gonna
make me want a little more”
Their sound is smooth alt rock, with “Don’t Believe a Word That I Say” feeling like passionate frustration, and a call for someone to pay attention. The wide open spaces and echoed vocals feel like “is anyone out there?”. We’re here, Shiny Penny!
Check out the video for “Don’t Believe a Word That I Say” below. If you’re sensitive to seeing people underwater or trapped, stick to Spotify. 😉
