The Kiwis “Shangri-La” is a benchmark album from one of Atlanta’s most eclectic pop bands. Produced by Mike Wright (Black Lips, Selmanaires) the album draws on influence from punk, psychedelia, folk, and eastern philosophy. Named after the fictional utopian society, “Shangri-La” strives to capture that level of flawed perfection. Lush instrumentals morph into punk anthems and symphonic pop songs reminiscent of early Phil Spector. Based on the Taoist cycles of life, “Shangri-La” mimics the changing of the seasons while chronicling the duelistic nature of Life and Love.
