Hello Shark

Hello Shark – Fishing For Bats

Downer pop at its finest, Hello Shark are reminiscent of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone’s lo-fi brilliance, without ever losing sight of their own unique touch. The harsh minimal beat, simple organ line and cracked vocals come together to create something instantly heartbreaking, made ever more so with the beautiful addition of female vocals to make lines like “you are my only regret” even more impacting. Reminding us that something so simple can be fantastically moving.

(Thanks to GoldFlakePaint for the heads up)
