Sharks – Show of Hands

December 29, 2010

Here’s something a little different. Sharks are a British d.i.y. punk band that are blowing people away with their first official EP. Recently, I’ve been obsessed with The Clash, and I couldn’t have heard this band at a better time. The singer sounds exactly like Joe Strummer. The band plays a mix of classic punk (The Clash and The Buzzcocks) and modern melodic punk (The Gaslight Anthem and The Hold Steady) but makes it all their own. “Show of Hands” is a confident and refreshing debut from a band with a lot of potential. I’m excited to see where this band goes in the future.
