Facts: Only Shallow is a song by Irish shoegaze band My Bloody Valentine. It was the opening track and second single from their famous second album Loveless, which was released 4 Nov. 1991, and as a single the following March. The band consists of guitarist, sampler, and vocalist Kevin Shields, guitarist and vocalist Bilinda Butcher, bassist Debbie Googe, and drummer and sampler Colm Ó Cíosóig.
It was written by Kevin Shields and Bilinda Butcher.
The song is one of the many that features Shields' unique guitar playing, known as "Glide Guitar" which uses the tremolo bar while strumming to create a natural "wah-wah" distorted effect without pedals and effects.
The album itself was one of the most ever produced, enough to sever ties between the band and record company Creation Records due to the expenses (which was rumored to cost £250,000).
The song reached #27 on Billboard Modern Rock chart, their only song to chart in the US to this day.
: I'm an MLP fan and I enjoy plenty of airplanes, and music. I have a SoundCloud and a Tumblr account. I am a musician and I make my own music as well as cover songs. I have a bass, an electric, and 2 acoustic guitars, 2 keyboards, a drum set, low budget mikes, and a PC with audio programs to mix it all. I can/used to sing in 19 languages (I doubt it sounds that good). Music is my drug, my addiction. I never leave home without my iPod. My favorite bands/artists are a-ha, The Verve, Green Day, Marilyn Manson, and Nirvana. The songs I write personally are influenced by them. My favorite styles of music are pretty much everything except rap, but my fav's are Alternative Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Dream Pop/Shoegazing, Pop, Punk Rock, and Industrial Metal.
I been drawing for over 6 years or so now, but don't have many plans to excel in it, it's just a hobby.
I value individuality very highly; I am a registered Libertarian. I keep an open mind about religion; I am an Agnostic. I draw what I feel like, and that could be anything and everything, meaning if it's sexy, it is, if it's ugly, it is, if it's cute, it is, if it's controversial, it is.
I have a lifelong dream of being a pilot, of some sort. Currently I am studying to eventually become a Computer Technician with hopes of sticking to it and moving up the ladder.
