LISTEN: Sharkmuffin NEW Single First Date from upcoming debut full-length, Chartreuse

Sharkmuffin's roots are in the choppy, rough waves of the Jersey shore, they met on July 4, 2012 only months before the very beach house in which they met was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.
Turbulent Thrash is a good descriptor of the music Tarra Thiessen (vocals/guitar/theremin/pocket piano) and bassist/vocalist Natalie Kirch make, from The Ventures to early Black Sabbath churned through an undercurrent of surfed up psychedelic power pop.

Following up to their last release “1097” EP, named after the beach house Natalie and Tarra first jammed at they've announced the release of their debut full-length, Chartreuse, enlisting ex-Hole / current Upset drummer, Patty Schemel. The album is due on vinyl, cassette, and digital download on August 7th via NY / NJ-based label State Capital Records and Little Dickman Records.
“Chartreuse is mine and Natalie’s favorite color, but it’s also a liqueur whose recipe is only known by two monks, and each monk only knows half the recipe and has to keep it a secret,” Thiessen says. “All the tracks are really bright, in your face, and obvious like the color, but all lyrically deal with relationship dynamics involving things that for better or worse were hidden from each other.”
Listen to the new flesh tearing, screamer of a single. First Date an intense jangly punked up fast-paced romp stomp much like the date it describes.
