Kansas City’s self-described “landlocked surf outfit” Shy Boys began as a way to escape their day jobs and skip class. That sense of escapism seeps throughout their debut full-length, sounding very much like three Midwesterners who dream of the beach a lot but don’t manage to get there very often. The album was recorded live to tape in only a few days and the quick recording process only draws attention to the effortlessness of these tracks. Clocking in at under a half-hour, these songs are loose sketches of easygoing surf pop with vocals that rarely rise above a whisper. Stream the whole thing below.

Shy Boys’ self-titled debut album is available 1/21 on High Dive Records.
