Shining Faces 

Shining Faces is a four-piece punk band founded by vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Clinton Mekeel, with support from bass player Kevin Giacchetto, drummer Austin Flynn, and guitarist Nick Trujillo. Hardly old enough to drink but with an encyclopedic knowledge of everything rock and roll, Shining Faces has a penchant for reinventing the classics, turning heads early on by adding a punk rock twist to oldies like Joe Cocker’s “The Letter” and Hound Dog Taylor’s “Give Me Back My Wig.” With ears lingering in the past but eyes dead-set on the present, Shining Faces cleverly melds the reckless lyrical sentiments and gritty guitar riffs of punk with the dextrous solos and earworms of surf rock. Like most of their Gen Z peers, Shining Faces are disillusioned by most of what post-2020 society has yielded and on their debut EP, ‘Confuse the Enemy,’ their only aim is to find a shred of authenticity in a world where our lives are becoming increasingly commodified.
