SHARKY CLOSES CHAPTER ONE WITH PUNCHY BUILDER "HE BURNED DOWN THE CITY"
London-based songstress Sharky continues to expand her immersive sonic palette on "He Burned Down The City". Sharky says of the track... "He burned down the city was written with a 'spiky' perspective on particular emotions. It is angry and sarcastic and a plea for help whilst in the pursuit of higher ground."
A kaleidoscopic trip through the brain's synapses during the confusion of anger, He Burned Down The City is a self aware sarcastic look at hunting for a higher moral standpoint within confrontation. Sharky's vocal delivery Is somehow brittle but assertive, creating a powerful and enticing vocal.
The rhythms are hard hitting but infectiously polyrhythmic and tribal. The song has no cadence, it shifts keys, never returning home and ends with a huge deep bass confusion and suspense, with Sharky's voice flying about the place backward and forward as if flying through time.
Her last single "Bold As Brass" was perfectly summed up by Et Musique Pour Tous as "...an insanely immaculate, ultra nuanced piece of art that feels so layered that you could dig into it for weeks, months, years, and still find something new every time. It feels more like a short film than a song with the amount of details strung throughout..."
Praised by Indie Shuffle for her "incredibly distinct vocals" and Okayplayer for "a range and power that few can hold a candle to", Sharky has quickly won the hearts of listeners and tastemakers alike.
