Consisting of Lee Bulig (music) and Pete Crane (vocals), neither member
currently resides in their home country or even remotely close to each other.
Despite the geographical distance, the duo is in tune enough to write music
as if they are in the same room. The key characteristics of the Shiv-r sound
are haunting neoclassical melodies, harsh percussive club sounds, clean
male vocals delivered in shouts and whispers, sparse rhythm guitars, and an
overwhelming dark atmosphere. Metropolis was so impressed by their music
that they are pleased to release Hold My Hand in 2010.
