Shantih Shantih
Shantih Shantih
Shantih Shantih is a three-piece band founded in Atlanta, GA in 2013. Their sound is characterized by hypnotic, knitted vocals and lysergic guitar solos that play over fuzzed out melodies and mesmerizing beats. Shantih's rock n' roll blends southern gothic images with hoary Italian landscapes, creating vivid, yet melancholic narratives. The group consists of Italian native Anna Barattin (ex Vermillion Sands) on vocals and rhythm guitar, Julia Furgiuele on drums, and Anna Kramer on lead guitar, with the exception of a few songs led by Julia, where instruments are switched.

The band shared the stage with the Black Lips, Gringo Star, Dan Deacon, La Luz, Shannon and the Clams, Crocodiles, Subsonics and Night Beats. They also played SXSW, released a 7" (via Italian Indie-'shit music for shit people'), toured Europe, the Eastern United States, played the Atlanta Mess Around Festival, Intensified Festival in Athens, GA, Humanist SK Festival in Paris, and headlined the Indie Grits Festival in Columbia, SC. The song "Ruby" from their first single was featured in The Black Lips' video "Nightmare Field":

Shantih Shantih finished their first LP "Winter in September" (recorded by Peter Furgiuele of Gringo Star) and debuted their second single in October 2015 for Adult Swim's annual compilation. They recently shot a video with fellow Atlantans, Newmerica (Orange Amps, Coathangers, Mastodon, Black Lips):
