New York, USA // State Capital // Exploding In Sound

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 (featuring Patty Schemel of Upset/Hole on drums) is their most vicious lure, featuring 10 tracks that bleed heavily with feminine rage and cheeky sass alike. 2017 has proved to be a big year for Sharkmuffin, releasing their sophomore effort Tsuki in May (feat. Kim Deuss on drums), followed by their first international tour to the UK with Chris Nunez on guitar and Drew Adler on drums. In July, this line-up released a split EP cassette with Little Dickman Records label-mates The Off White and toured the U.S. all summer, including a tour south to see the Total Solar Eclipse in August. To finish out this busy year, they toured in support of Kool A.D. & Cult Days.
