Mercer described the Shins as a “pop project” from the beginning. The group were inspired by any and all music that they discovered. “Everything we listen to […] makes its way in somehow, but we’ve been inspired by a bunch of bands who basically just keep reinventing the same thing,” said Mercer.

The group received comparisons to the “pop revivalists” at the Elephant 6 Recording Collective early in their career, such as The Apples in Stereo, whilst Mercer’s vivid, often surrealist lyrics and infectious melodies drew comparisons to the songwriting style of Robert Pollard from Guided by Voices.
In 2012, the band performed at the Lollapalooza Festival alongside Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + the Machine, Of Monsters and Men, Franz Ferdinand, Frank Ocean, The Head & the Heart, Alabama Shakes, Walk Off the Earth.
In 2013, The Shins played at the Boston Calling Music Festival with others including Fun., The National, Of Monsters and Men, Young the Giant, Marina and the Diamonds, Andrew Bird, Matt & Kim, and Portugal. The Man.
Rolling Stone credited the band with bringing “the pop traditions of 1960s pop bands—groups like the Zombies, and the Beach Boys—to a new generation of music fans.”
Their discography includes five studio albums, one live album, one remix album, three extended plays, two splits, twenty-three singles, and twenty-one music videos.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE THE SHINS?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire THE SHINS for an event?)
(i.e., what is THE SHINS booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for THE SHINS, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at any time without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when the artist becomes less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at any time. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
