Video: The Shins – Simple Song

Plenty has changed with The Shins in the five years since the release of their last studio album.

On March 20, Mercer & Co. will release their fifth studio album, Port of Morrow, which coincidentally will also be their major label debut.

  1. Woah. The shins is one of those bands that is able to actually capture emotions from past experiences and bring them right back as if we were emotionally time traveling. The blend of this song and video is magical, immaculate, and unforgettable. I consider myself incredibly lucky to be living during a time that a band like The Shins exists… I’m simply blown away by everything they do. I am so anxious for the works on the new album… just three more weeks away!
