Sharkmuffin Releases Foul Play, with Bassist Natalie Kirch
Sharkmuffin Premieres the video “Foul Play“ on SheShreds, with Bassist Natalie Kirch.
Taken from their latest EP 1097, “’Foul Play’ is a rockabilly punk track that is the female version of London indie rock band The Horrors” (On Radar). The video takes onlookers into the eerie depths of Sharkmuffin‘s world, and shows that, “Sharkmuffin is simply put, a kick-ass rock band” (Boxx Magazine).
Bringing the three ladies together who call themselves Sharkmuffin was no piece of cake. With 11 years of guitar playing under her belt, Tarra Thiessen (vocals/guitar/theremin/pocket piano) discovered bassist/vocalist Natalie Kirch at the Jersey Shore and joined forces on July 4, 2012 only months before the very beach house in which they met was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. After a run with a few various drummers, Janet LaBelle stepped up to complete the sonically-crushing trifecta. Sharkmuffin has cooked up their newest release 1097, providing four quick but intense slaps in the face, as each biting track clocks in at less than two minutes.
With a recipe of influences, from The Breeders, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Hole, Ty Segall, The Ventures, to early Black Sabbath, Brooklyn-based Sharkmuffin
Sharkmuffin has been making waves with their “badass riot grrl” sound, and are true rockstars in-the-making.
