Shannon and the Clams have already made a name for themselves for their unique soulful garage rockabilly and tremulous vocals. Their latest track release “It’s Too Late” is a swinging, doo-wop ballad that marries clever guitar riffs with endlessly hummable verses. Shannon Shaw’s voice is as thick as the maple syrup that smothers your pancakes on a Sunday morning. She shrieks with a graceful passion of heavy heartbeats that recall the brawling vocals of Etta James or The Ronettes.

“It’s Too Late” is an ode to passing lovers of estranged and sinking relationships. Shaw’s voice alternates from a sugary 60’s girl group into a deep bluesy growl. She tugs and pulls at the heartstrings over past, fleeting relationships as she croons, “Darling it’s too late / to make it right / I had my chance / but I didn’t try.”

Shaw’s song writing paints the damages of a broken heart resonating with grief, apathy and nostalgia. “Its Too Late” is a jangly pop-ballad that swings in your eardrums and casts a infectious pop spell that will leave any room swooning. “It’s Too Late” will be on Shannon and the Clams forthcoming full-length Gone By the Dawn via Hardly Art Records.
