Ground Control Touring Welcomes Shy Boys

Posted 04/03/2018

Ground Control Touring is proud to announce our newest signing, Shy Boys!

Hailed as “The Beach Boys on Robitussin”, Shy Boys (brothers Collin & Kyle Rausch, Konnor Ervin, Kyle Little & Ross Brown) were bred in the dankest basements of Kansas City, MO as a group of ill-fitting squares in a scene of punks and weirdos. Their self-titled 2014 debut album was dubbed “impressively catchy” by Brooklyn Vegan, and crowned “a triumph” by Pitchfork. With their airy, hazy, indie-pop sound, the band channels the likes of The Shins and Smith Westerns.

Shy Boys’ sophomore album will arrive later this year on Polyvinyl Record Co., bringing with it big, melancholic vocal harmonies of a past’s present, amidst these strange and bittersweet future daze. Catch the band on tour this June, and make sure to keep an eye on Shy Boys’ artist page for other upcoming news and announcements.
