On Monday 18th March 2013, Sturm Und Drang Recordings will release the self-titled debut EP by Bury St Edmunds-based singer-songwriter Shannon Hope.
Shannon Hope exploded onto the Norwich scene in the late 00s as one half (the singing, drumming, songwriting half) of boy-girl riot-punkrrrs GLORY GLORY. Egged on by fellow double-barrelled compadres Fever Fever, Glory Glory briefly blazed a drunken, mischievous trail across the UK’s DIY scene before imploding in a hungover haze.
Relocating to her Suffolk hometown, Shannon quickly fell back into the local scene as drummer and vocalist for Fugazi-esque punk outfit RATS AS BIG AS DOGS and indie-blues trio HORSE PARTY. But quietly, away from the roar and squeal of toilet venue speakers, Shannon began writing again and, inspired by longtime heroes Cat Power and Bjork, the six songs which would form her debut EP slowly took shape.
