It’s always a pleasure to hear great new music out of the county of Kings and even more so when it’s from an, accidental, supergroup of sorts. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Jake Backer (El Silver Cabs), vocalist Laura Gwynn (Sirs&Madams), guitarist Darrell Dumas (The Royal They), bassist Terry Edelman (Lost Kingdoms) and drummer Mike Seidenfeld (El Silver Cabs), Bizarre Sharks served as an experiment for the quintet of friends as they gathered to write and record an EP in just one day. The result? A forthcoming, self-titled EP.
Speak Into My Good Eye is happy to host the exclusive premiere of Bizarre Sharks’ new single, “Tremendous,” today. The deliciously fuzzy slack-rock cut blends each individual member’s talents wonderfully as Backer and Gwynn’s interweaving vocals play over the towering guitars.
“‘Tremendous’ is the sound of a relationship turning bitter,” shares Backer. “We tried to capture how quickly cute can turn ugly and how the same phrases you used to show how much you loved someone can be weaponized. How the funny little quirks become the thing you can’t fucking stand. Also, big guitars because fuck yeah rock and roll!”
Stream Bizarre Sharks’ “Tremendous” below and look for the EP out on all digital formats on 12/8. Bizarre Sharks will celebrate the EP release with a show at Elsewhere (Zone 1) with Sharkmuffin and Fat Heaven.
