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 is currently mixing their sophomore effort to-be-titled Tsuki, touring the country with their 1995 Dodge Caravan Patrick with Drew Adler on drums & Chris Nunez on guitar, and plan to serve up their signature cocktails and ice cream by inventing the first punk rock brunch truck. Stay tuned for further deliciousness. [facebook]
