As a creative unit, the Shills draw in a number of influences, but their mission has remained more or less the same in their eight-year lifespan. They are aware of their sound and push each other to build on it. "Knowing that I have the opportunity to play with these guys that I have known for so long is comforting," says Murphy.
In a scene in which many bands come and go before making it out of their infancy, the Shills have shown patience and persistence. "There seems to be a four-year turnover for bands in Boston," says Murphy. "I don't really understand why bands take on so many projects."
