It’s been nearly two years since our friends in Shiffley dropped new tunes but they’re back with a new track “RI₵H KIDS!” The new song brings their signature synth pop sweetness but if you dig deeper, it grapples with feelings of social inadequacy and despair built into a broken system.

We hopped on a virtual hangout to chat about the new song, their quarantine activities, and what’s on the horizon for the band in the coming year. Watch our interview with singer/songwriter Alex Gaines and drummer Bryan Contreras below!

Be sure to stream “RI₵H KIDS” on your favorite music platform now.

Video Premiere: Shiffley – “Instinct Over Mind”

Shiffley have been keeping it low key, working on new music behind the scenes. We’re excited to present the premiere of their latest single and brand new music video for “Instinct Over Mind.”

The piano driven ballad showcases the stripped back evolution of the synth pop group.  Directed and edited by bassist Shaune Killough, the music video focuses on singer, Alex Ganes as he pours his heart out on a grand piano to an empty auditorium.

Watch the brand new video for “Instinct Over Mind” below!

Shiffley Premiere New Video For “Away, Away!”

Take a trip down memory lane with Shiffley in their brand new video for “Away, Away!”  The vintage video footage has them performing on a hit late night TV show from yesteryear but is perfectly in tune with today.  The latest single from Shiffley’s debut album, Paper Cranes, the track is simple yet powerful, and filled with gang vocal chants but still really dancey.

Watch the video complete with sweater vests, sideburns and combovers, and 70s era mustaches below!

Shiffley Release “Sleepless Night” Remixes

Our friends in Shiffley have been relatively quiet lately, but their latest single “Sleepless Night” just got the remix treatment from a bunch of awesome collaborators!  The remixes are packaged together and bring out the best of the single on each remix.

These are perfect for whatever mood you’re in whether you’re mellowing out to the Figaro “Sleepytime Tea” Remix or getting ready for a night out with your friends to the N2N remix.  We had a hard time picking a favorite but the Shinynaut remix is really good!  It highlights the high energy of the track and adds in a subtle ticking clock just before the big drop.  If any of these could easily be worked into a Skrillex set, it’s this one!

Listen to all of the “Sleepless Nights” Remixes below and try to pick a favorite!

SecretFangirls.com Interview Shiffley

Shiffley is synth-based pop rock at its finest.   The Long Island based band is one of our top artists you need to know in 2016. They are a lot of fun live, and can win over any crowd with their catchy melodies and energetic onstage presence. Shiffley are currently working on a debut album (we can’t wait!!) and in the meantime you can stream their EPs on Spotify.

We caught up with the band after their show at Piano’s in NYC and talked about what’s next for the band, who they’d fangirl over and their pre-concert rituals. Watch our interview below and get to know Shiffley!  Remember to #ShareTheShiff.

Artist To Watch: Shiffley

We first saw Long Island’s own Shiffley over the Summer when they opened for our friends in Patent Pending.  They immediately won us over with their synth-driven pop-rock sound and their energetic onstage presence.  We were thrilled we got to see them again recently at Piano’s in NYC.  Their set is a blast from start to finish, including a rock version of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love,” which we didn’t know we needed until now.  Their single “Cry” has some of the catchiest gang vocals we’ve ever heard (seriously, listen to it once and you’ll be humming it for days, in a good way).

In a few short years, Shiffley have made a name for themselves in the New York music scene, sharing the stage with not only Patent Pending, but also Twenty One Pilots and Plain White Ts.  Band mates Alex Ganes, Alex Jenks, Bryan Contreras, Shaune Killough, and Will Rosati have created the perfect blend of synth driven pop rock.  While you can certainly hear their influences from bands like The Killers, Shiffley have a unique sound that’s all their own.

Their EP, “Anthem City,” is out now and the band is working on their debut album due out (fingers crossed!) sometime this year.    Stream the EP on SoundCloud below and pickup a copy on iTunes now!  Visit Shiffley’s website for upcoming tour dates and more info, and if you can make it out to a show, GO!  And remember to #ShareTheShiff.
