Like your pop dark and dirty? This one's for you.
Shield Patterns are Manchester-based duo, Claire Brentnall and Richard Knox, known for their unique brand of intense, dark pop music.
Since the release of their debut album, 'Contour Lines', released back in June 2014 and supported by a full nationwide tour, the two have not only been shaking up the local music scape, but also ruffling feathers much further afield.
The latest Shield Pattern EP, 'Violet', is due for release this March, which also sees them hopping across the channel with European tour dates.
