Yay, you’re back! Welcome to BTRtoday’s Discovery Corner podcast brought to you by, Levi’s.

This week we talk with shy kids; a Toronto-based band putting out a mixture of melodic punk, catchy electronic, and ambitious indie beats that’ll get your heart racing and/or breaking.

Comprised of Walter Woodman, Patrick Cederberg, Matt Hornick, the trio mostly switch around which instrument they play live, with the exception of Woodman, who sticks with being lead vocals and the lively energy of the group.

Cederberg confesses that the band got together around five years ago after Walter called him up saying he needed to create a band. “I said, ‘ok, what can you play?’,” Cederberg tells BTRtoday. “He was like, ‘no, no–what can YOU play?!'”

The group may claim themselves as a bunch of shy kids just jammin’, but the dynamic of these three friends creates magic and immediately makes the listener feel connected. One listen to tracks like “Terminally In Love With You” or “Noodie” off their newest LP Lofty! and you’re instantly BFFs with these shy kids.

Make sure to check them out on all their social media sites to keep up-to-date on their next live shows and upcoming tunes to-be released!
