Shine was recorded by John Hawley in St. George Utah. Half of the songs were recorded in 2009 and released as Shine EP. Shallow Day later recorded some additional songs in 2010 and re-released the EP as a full length album. In January of 2010, they wrote and released the song Twilight (what have you done to my wife?) and immediately gained worldwide exposure with it's accompanying youtube video. With the exception of their comical internet hit, Shine is an album with a serious face.
