Aggs’ way with a lyric and how she seems to turn every line into a something that could become a chant on the terraces or on a march make Shopping an addictive and energetic proposal.

On All or Nothing, Shopping talk big and play loud, showing their sharp sense of what makes people move.

Musically the album is as sleek and purposeful as a set of Bang & Olufsen speakers.
