The members of Fake Shark have long been known for their singular style and feverish, wide-eyed abandon. As well as a streamlining of the band’s name (dropping the “Real Zombie” part of their previous moniker), there’s been a conscious effort to tighten up Fake Shark’s musical centre.
While the new music may have settled into a groove-heavy indie rock vibe, it still crackles with the touchstones and foundation of their musical catalogue – original concepts, cutting lyrics, and a plethora of interesting voices.
With this latest step in their career, they’ve learned to harness that anything-goes energy in order to deliver the catchiest songs possible. Now that they’ve killed the real zombie, Fake Shark is more alive than ever.
