Consequence of Sound Premiers ‘Wither’ By Shark?

2013-09-16_1501

As the October 1st release date for their LP, Savior, inches closer, Brooklyn rockers, Shark?, are enjoying the continuous support from the music publication world. Premiering the newest single, ‘Wither’ from their record, Savior, Consequence of Sound spoke about the track as being, “an acoustic riff that could’ve been born in the bedroom of some indie songwriter in the 90s or early aughts.”  They went on to talk about how, Wither’ is a great removal from Shark?’s often loud and electric sound and that, ”it’s an earnest lost-love track with a golden hook, proving the diverse Shark? isn’t solely about fuzzed-out bites.”

Watch the Shark? California Grrls Video on Stereogum

The fine folks at Stereogum premiered the humorous new video from Shark? Watch “California Grrls” now if you want a cheap laugh and come see them play with Mean Creek and Radical Dads tonight at Death By Audio in Brooklyn if you want a cheap rocking.

From Stereogum:
“NYC garage quartet Shark? seem to inhabit a world where primarily everyone dons a poor quality Ronalde Reagan (I assume this is Reagan. Just a janky, janky Reagan) mask in their normal lives. They wear a Reagan mask when they’re at band practice, making out, and stealing people’s purses. It’s the right display of Shark?’s sense of humor, whose anti-ode to the women of the west coast “California Grrls” may be vitriol-laden but seems to have a tongue-in-cheek sensibility to it. The band has just released the song with Old Flame Records, who will also drop their full-length Savior later this year. Watch the video below.”
