The Shining Tongues, a band born in the depths of lockdown, is the first new project from The Infinite Three’s Daniel Knowler since the tragic death of drummer Paul Middleton in 2019.

In March 2020 Daniel reconnected with Infinite Three bassist Sam Mclaughlin to begin a new collaborative project. Taking their previous band’s post-punk urgency and adding an atmospheric gothic folkiness along with elements of drone-rock, psychedelia, spiritual jazz and soundtrack music.

Recording for a collection of singles and a debut album is taking place with contributions from Orlando Harrison (of Alabama 3), Robin Jax (of RobinPlaysChords), Ben Mclees (of This Is Radio Silence), Andrea Kerr (of Living With Eating Disorders), Artur Hajdasz (of Made In Poland, Tilt, Homo Twist and others), Maria Vellanz (of Bent Husbands) and Den Liberator (longtime Infinite Three co-producer and collaborator).
