* SHARKMUFFIN *
Sharkmuffin is Tarra Thiessen and Natalie Kirch, a duo of Brooklynite sirens bred from the waves of the Jersey shore. Influenced by everyone from Nirvana to The Ronettes, Sharkmuffin adds a unique jagged edge onto ‘60s beach pop meets ‘90s alt sound, a genre lovingly dubbed “opti-mystic glam-grunge.” With several cross-country tours (including many return trips to SXSW) and no shortage of EPs, Sharkmuffin has been creating a veritable whirlpool of musical chaos. Their 2015 debut LP Chartreuse is their most vicious lure, featuring 10 tracks that bleed heavily with feminine rage and cheeky sass alike.
“Sharkmuffin are either the most glam garage band around, or the grungiest glam band around.” – NPR
“Sharkmuffin are one of the more popular garage punk bands in the Brooklyn music scene, and essential listening for fans of Screaming Females. There’s a certain ’90s feel to the music they make, driven by demanding but never desperate hollers.”” -Billboard Magazine
“Their sound is energetic and wild, fitting for a band with a name like theirs. It’s rough and raw and soaked in whisky, just the way the best bands are.“ – The Village Voice
* BEEFYWINK *
Beefywink’s sound is heavily focused on the raw and angsty sound created by artists such as Nirvana, Patti Smith and PJ Harvey. With political and defiant undertones, their live sets are a mix of raging riff based quickies and ‘wonderfully dirty, twisted rock ‘n’ roll’.
* BIG FISH *
BIG FISH are an up and coming 4 piece rock band, With influences such as the Pixies, Radiohead and Nirvana, they will appeal to those who indulge in introspective and thoughtful songwriting but also to those who love to be stung by hard hitting rock anthems.
* The Shuks *
Raw, powerful and dissonant post punk band inspired by the likes of The Pixies, Sonic Youth and The Clash. The Shuks are DIY through and through, and whilst they’re not even a year old, they’ve already started to create ever growing murmurs in the underground scenes of Bristol and Bath. Live shows bristle with energy, an atmosphere captured in their latest live releases “You Want My Dirt” and “Running”.
