The first video Shark? has ever made. It’s for the song “I’ve Got Friends” and it took two loooong days of shooting at our amazing friends’ loft. We can’t thank everyone enough for all their hard work.
It’s always been a dream of mine to join the ranks of artists who have written a song named after their band. With that in mind, I began recording this summer-y ditty, “Shark?” I think it acurately captures the meaning of our name: that moment of unsure, slightly paranoid fear you feel when something touches your foot while you swim in the open ocean… it could simply be some harmless, slimy seaweed… but what if it’s something more sinister than that?
This is a great song. I’d totally be in the crowd raising my bottle of beer and singing along with the chorus. As a matter of fact, you should come to Milwaukee so I can be in the crowd raising my bottle of beer and singing along with the chorus.
To help you get you through the final doldrums of winter, I offer you my latest mixtape: Waiting For The Thaw. Download and enjoy!
