Lots of exciting Northern Noise Live news this week. We’re sure you’ve already heard about this Friday’s Novella show at Manchester’s Sound Control but did you know we have another event scheduled for the following night? On Saturday we’ll be traveling a little further down Oxford Road to Fallowfield, the student capital of the North, to help Manchester quartet Shinies celebrate their single launch in style at Trof. For only five English pounds you’ll get to experience one of the most talked about bands in town perform in the teeniest venue you’re ever likely to see play. Not enough for you? Well hows about this to sweeten the deal: Shinies have compiled a quick mixtape for us of the songs that mean the most to them, all for your listening pleasure. Click play below to get started on your very own Shinies-inspired musical adventure. Heck, we’ve even gone and stuck it in a Spotify playlist so you can listen while you work. Watch out for that ad man though, he’s well annoying.

Did you read our interview with Shinies too? Because you should.
