Sharkmuffin on “Little Bird” video:
“Little Bird” is lyrically about an individual trying to be a big shot and climb his way up in the world. For the video, we decided to take the opposite approach and follow around THE biggest bird in the world: Big Bird. Big Bird is just trying to hang around Bushwick, but he’s so noticeable he needs Ben Jaffe of PILL to be his body guard and keep the hoards of fans at bay. Eventually, Big Bird runs off with Sharkmuffin to have a pizza party and finds a love interest.
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, and no shortage of EPs, Sharkmuffin has been creating a veritable whirlpool of musical chaos. Their 2015 debut LP Chartreuse is their most vicious lure, featuring 10 tracks that bleed heavily with feminine rage and cheeky sass alike.
Sharkmuffin is ready to release their sophomore effort Tsuki (feat. Kim Deuss on drums) on May 5th, 2017, touring the country this March with their original line-up of Drew Adler on drums and Chris Nunez on second guitar, and plan to serve up their signature cocktails and ice cream by inventing the first punk rock brunch truck. Stay tuned for further deliciousness. Sharkmuffin’s sophomore album Tsuki comes out May 5th via Little Dickman Records.
