Following up on our most recent review of yet another musical marriage, we now focus on Tom and Jamie have produced this love project, for which we have the pleasure to review today. Shishi has presented the world their first single “Nick of Time”. Tom Lugo is also a well-established personality in the shoegaze indie pop world, as the founder of Patetico Recordings, a small Philadelphia-based indie record label, and from having founded and been involved in numerous musical projects related to shoegaze, noise and independent music in general. Now, with Shishi, he has embraced a new musical project with his wife Jamie, which represents a successful attempt to create pop songs with a distinct noise vibe happening at the same time.

Despues de nuestra mas reciente reseña, seguimos con otro matrimonio musical, ahora enfocados en Tom y Jamie quienes han dado vida a este hermoso proyecto, que tenemos el gusto de presentarles hoy. Shisi ha lanzado hace poco su primer single "Nick of Time". Tom Lugo  es ya toda un personalidad en el mundo del shoegaze y el indie-pop, como fundador de Patetico Recordings, y por haber sido parte de de innumerables proyectos musicales relacionados con el shoegaze, el noise y la musica independiente en general. Ahora, con Shishi ha comenzado una nueva aventura musical junto a su esposa,en el cual logran crear una mezcla entre la sensibilidad de las canciones pop pero fusionado con sonidos noise.

With their first single "Nick of Time", which is almost 4 minutes long, Tom and Jamie have brewed up a tasteful potpourri of everything they wanted to achieve, with all their musical influences blended in a pop song with elements of shoegaze, noise and dance. The result is strong and simple, you can feel all the musical elements in every second of the song, in a careful balance between Jamie's pop-oriented voice and the noisy guitars and synths. With this as a basic core, all the other musical elements fit perfectly and Shishi realizes itself – this makes for a nice pop song that could be enjoyed by noise fans as well. 

Con su primer singles " Nick of Time" y con apenas 4 minutos de duracion, Tom y Jamie han creado una excelente mezcla de todo lo que querian hacer musicalmente, con todas sus influencias musicales mezcladas en una cancion pop con elementos de shoegaze, noise y dance. El resultado es bastante consistente. puedes sentir todos los elementos musicales en cada segundo de la cancion, en un equilibrio entre la dulce voz de Jamie y las guitarras y sintetizadores ruidosos. Con todo esto como centro, todos los otros elementos musicales se acoplan perfectamente y Shishi logra su cometido- crear una cancion pop que puede ser disfrutada por los amantes del noise tambien.
