We hereby exist. The Shining Tongues is a new songwriting project from Daniel Knowler and Sam Mclaughlin of The Infinite Three, with a revolving cast of fellow noisemakers.


Here is a tentative first offering. We hope it brings you joy.

Since around February this year I have been writing songs for a new post-Infinite Three project which – as you have by now gleaned – is called The Shining Tongues. Some very rough acoustic demos were posted here (they’ll be taken down soon so hear them while you can!). I’ve been fleshing out these songs over the last few weeks with the supreme help of some truly fine musicians.

Robin Jax (of RobinPlaysChords) has played some deliciously psychedelic electric guitar; Ben Mclees (of This Is Radio Silence) has played some devilish violin and guitar; Orlando Harrison (of Alabama 3) has provided some nourishing piano, organ, rhodes and synths; Samuel Mclaughin (my fellow Infinite Three alumni) has played some multi-dimensional bass guitar, analogue synth, harmonica and additional vocals; Artur Hajdasz (of Made In Poland, Tilt, Homo Twist and others) is providing some sublime drumming; And we’ll also have some contributions from Maria Vellanz (of Bent Husbands), Andrea Kerr (of Living With Eating Disorders) and Den Liberator (longtime Infinite Three co-producer and collaborator).

The songs are swelling and brimming with beauty, thanks in no small part to the wonderful contributions from the above mentioned humans.  I am really looking forward to releasing them!

For now though, please take the time to follow us on Bandcamp, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Spotify.  We’ll also have an email list set up soon.
