White Reaper and Spiritual Cramp Collaborate on New Song ‘Shimmy’

    Louisville quintet White Reaper and San Francisco punks Spiritual Cramp have released their two-song split 7-inch. It includes the previously shared track ‘Whatever You Say Man’; listen to the second collaboration, ‘Shimmy’, below.

    “‘Shimmy’ is a song we all wrote together during the very early days of the pandemic, and for whatever reason at that time we just couldn’t crack the code on the lyrics or the arrangement,” White Reaper explained in a statement. “Years later, having revisited the song, it seemed clear what to add and / or subtract to get it to where we wanted it to be. There’s this sort of fast-talking / singing part in the verses that felt like something that would really lend itself to Mike’s voice and he totally crushed it.”
