Yesterday, Kingston, ON’s Shook Planet released a brand new single, “Not Your Kinda Type” along with an official video for the release.
Frontman, Ted Evans shares,
“Not Your Kinda Type is the first of a few collaborations between Liam and myself. We immediately felt a cool vibe from the first demo we slapped together. Then we just kept pushing from there. While we worked on this single, we ended up putting a bunch of other beats on the backburner. Now that N.Y.K.T. is out, we’re excited to get our next few releases in the works.”

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hey! I’m Shook Planet. I make beats, sing, play guitar, piano, and bass.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
In my mixes you’ll hear just as many live band instruments as you do electronic sounds. I always try to find a level of balance in all my tracks. Switching from rock to hip-hop to punk, and blending them all together. I like to break the rules sometimes too.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
Honestly, this project is so new that I don’t have any gigs booked yet. I have a live band to play with and are currently in the midst of rehearsing material and preparing the full live show. I do know there will be lots of lights and energy!
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
The first single, “Not Your Kinda Type” really is a perfect introduction to Shook Planet.
