I just wanted to write how the beginning reminds me of that song.

Anyways, this is good. I'm really interested in their debut album now

It's really grown on me and reminds me a bit of "When The Beat Drops Out".

Just can't stop playing this now, it's up there with King and Take Shelter as my favourite tracks of theirs (though all their songs are great that I've heard)

Only a month to release and still no official video and Radio 1 are still not playlisting the track (not even next week) which is surprising, still I expect the official video to appear in the next week

They're definitely loving it and playing it so it doesn't matter much.

They've been too busy touring (until the end of next week) to film a video.

I also was a bit disappointed when i first heard Shine, maybe because i was half expecting another glorious uplifting pop anthem. That said, i've really started to like Shine more since the video was released. Seeing the video a few times has helped the song niggle its way into my brain. I still prefer King though.

I could be wrong but it surely was a nod towards the film Close Encounters? Still the ending was well there wasn't one really

I think this song has a real charm about it, "King" was more anthemic but this is understated and nostalgic.

I was expecting much more from them, especially after "King", "Desire" and "Take Shelter". Very forgettable track.

I heard this on the radio yesterday and instantly loved it. I'd been wondering who the cute guy in Brad's avatar was lol. :lol:

Had a hard job finding this thread though. Looked in Pure Pop and there wasn't anything so I had a quick look in Alternative, and then did a google search. Dance? Really? :o

I'd say they're a dance act.
