Eccentric South London 5-piece La Shark will release their second single 'Mr Modern Man' on August 6th 2012.
The accompanying video is a bizarre, psychedelic composition adding humour to the already droll, upbeat track. Lyrically, it is fairly simple and repetitive but the vocal style, courtesy of Samuel Geronimoi Deschamps, is particularly distinctive and varied, sounding nothing like your average alternative pop band.
With vocalist Samuel, guitarist Benjamin Francis Markham, bassist Love Maynard, drummer N.H.A Buxton and Sami El Enany on keys, La Shark have already sold out a headline slot at the 500 capacity Albany Theatre in Deptford with their charming live flamboyancy along with seizing a support slot on tour with fellow indie Londoners The Maccabees earlier this year - and they haven't even been signed yet! Maccabees' guitarist Felix shows his support for the newcomers: 'I hope one day the world can appreciate how amazing bands like La Shark are. We need bands like them.' They also received much encouragement from Zane Lowe and Lauren Laverne who described them as 'noisy brilliance'.
They are currently set to headline a show at Birthdays in London on July 5th, followed by a spot on the BBC Introducing Stage at Scotland's T in the Park Festival on July 7th.
