Shopping are propulsive bass lines, primitive disco-not-disco drums and guitar lines sharp as broken glass. The band was formed in 2012 by members Rachel Aggs (guitar), Billy Easter (bass) and Andrew Milk (drums), who've all done time in a plethora of notable UK DIY bands including Trash Kit and Wet Dog.
Their sound - kinetic, minimalist dance-punk inspired by the likes of ESG, Gang of Four, Slits and Au Pairs - has won them glowing press from all quarters (NME, Pitchfork, NPR), impressive co-signs (Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker is a fan) and a loyal, cross-continent following accrued over three, acclaimed albums. No longer based in the capital these days - guitarist Rachel Aggs (Trash Kit, Sacred Paws) has relocated to Glasgow, joining drummer Andrew Milk (Current Affairs), while bassist Billy Easter (Wet Dog) is now a semi-permanent resident of Los Angeles - but Shopping will always be a London band.
As critics have noted, the trio's vision - groove-centered; deeply queer; political by default - place them in a radical lineage of dance, a continuum connecting disco and post-punk to Chicago house and EDM. That spirit of liberation through rhythm is very much present on All Or Nothing, says Aggs. 'We found ourselves singing about being true to yourself, in an often binary and belligerent digital age, and reclaiming agency when it feels like our personal freedom and privacy is constantly eroding.' In an era dominated by spin and surveillance, All Or Nothing invites us to remember what really moves us, in dance and in life.
