"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 Vill...age Voice
Sharkmuffin is led by Tarra Thiessen and Natalie Kirch, a duo of Brooklynite sirens bred from the waves of the Jersey shore, with Jordyn Blakely on drums. 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 just sold out of their sophomore LP Tsuki this past March. After their 6th SXSW stint this spring, they are planning a re-release of Tsuki on cassette with the addition of two fresh tracks before their return to the U.K. this summer. They plan to serve up their signature pizza, cocktails, and ice cream by inventing the first punk rock brunch truck. Stay tuned for further deliciousness.
“FEMUR have been hailed as purveyors of murky rock, striking up menacing live performances laced with lethal doses of grunge and psychedelia. High calibre gigs with Wytches, Avalanche Party, Bloody Knees and Slowcoaches have manifested into a sleep-when-you’re-dead mentality that can be felt shaking the foundations of their April 2018 EP. ‘In Your Belly’ is a dynamic 4-track composition of vitriolic lyrics clinging to a soundtrack that threatens to bite through to your core. Keep a sharp eye out for this Sheffield-based rabble spilling over into your hometown this year.”
