Shatner – Heterosapien
Shatner release latest album Enlightenmental
June 4th saw the physical release of the highly anticipated album ‘Enlightenmental’ from 5 piece power-pop outfit Shatner, following a successful and oversubscribed pledge campaign, and recent BBC airplay for the album’s lead tracks “Heterosapien” and “We Go Woo”.
Hard to pin to a particular genre, Shatner has recently been described as somewhere between The Clash, XTC, and The B52s.
Jim Bower, the band’s main songwriter, known for underpinning infectious songs with a smart and often darkly humorous subtext, teamed up with Paul Morricone for this album. Paul is known for his work with another legendary Yorkshire band, The Scaramanga Six.
Recent line-up changes have led the band in a more strident guitar-led direction, and working with Producer James Kenosha (Pulled Apart By Horses, Carl Barat, Marmosets, Dinosaur Pile-Up and more) the band have made an accomplished new album that they are confident will move them along from “local heroes” to a much wider recognition.
