Wall of Sound Presents: “2021 YEAR IN REVIEW” – by Short Stack’s Shaun Diviney

Announcing their new signing to UNFD is where Short Stack’s year really took off…

2021 has seen the band bury their heads into recording their forthcoming, newly announced album Maybe There’s No Heaven, drop their heaviest single to date (Burn You Down) and score a slot on their first heavy/alternative festival, UNIFY Gathering – it’s almost #SwaySwayCirclePit time baby!!!

While next year looks set to be an even bigger year for the best looking band in Australia, frontman Shaun Diviney sat down with us to discuss his personal favourite tunes from the past year. Anyone else heard Bo Burnham before? Dare you to give it a listen after reading Shaun’s Year In Review…

BEST MUSIC VIDEO OF 2021

Can we count the album Inside by Bo Burnham? It’s like a big, long music video…

LAST GIG YOU PLAYED BEFORE COVID HIT?

We played a few songs at AM//PM 2 days before lockdown. Our last proper show was the Tivoli in 2016.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT RETURNING TO THE STAGE?

Counting the minutes down haha

HOW DID YOU STAY BUSY THROUGHOUT THE PAST TWO YEARS?

We worked on our new album! It was a blessing in disguise. We surrounded ourselves with the best team we’ve ever had and ensured all of the music we created was the best we’ve done.

BEST ADVICE GOING INTO 2022?

Couldn’t possibly be worse, right?

WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO IN 2022?

Playing some shows!! Releasing our album!!! We have our biggest tour ever ready to go and also starting the year off with UNIFY which is a dream come true.
