New Single From Sharkmuffin + Giveaway

Brooklyn based band Sharkmuffin just released their debut single, "The Lake".  When I read there were some Chrissie Hynde comparisons I was a little skeptical.  But, I hear it!  I also hear a little Patti Smith grit & attitude in there too.  It's a lovely piece of dirty pop ... a little fuzz, a little jangle and a lot of good ol' fashioned, unabashed rock 'n' roll.  I'm looking forward to hearing their EP which is scheduled for a March release.  Check out "The Lake" HERE

Giveaway Alert!!! 

1) Sharkmuffin will be at The Delancey on Monday, February 25 at 9:30PM.  We have a pair of tickets to give to one lucky reader...21+!  For a chance to win, email Please put "Sharkmuffin Tickets" in the subject line.

2) We also have a copy of the 7" single "The Lake/Big" for one lucky reader.  For a chance to win this goodie, email Please put "Sharkmuffin 7"" in the subject line.

A winner (US only) will be chosen for each prize, at random, on Thursday, February 21. 

The combination of singer/guitarist Tarra Thiessen, alongside bassist Natalie Kirch with Drew Adler on drums, is deadly. Thiessen delivers gutsy vocals that will send shivers down your very spine. Jumping between gentle moans to rough, forceful screams, her vocals are sweetly complimented by Kirch's lighter, dreamier melodies which make you expect the unexpected. Their admiration for 90s alternative Grrrl group-esque hooks are paired perfectly with heavy 1970s inspired guitar riffs that create a raw sound not to be messed with.
