If Otto Van Schirach ventured into Pop, I can imagine that it would sound a little like up and coming artist Short Sharp Scratch’s latest single “Shark Infested Waters”.
While it may take a little while for the melodic hooks to sink their teeth in, the experimental Synth Pop single grabs your attention right from the prelude through the power of the Funk alone. There aren’t many artists brave enough to go so bold with their sound, but perceptibly, Short Sharp Scratch isn’t your average artist.
Even though Shark Infested Waters contains plenty of progressions in sound, it was easy to feel that the four-minute duration was slightly overstretched. Aside from that Shark Infested Waters is a flawlessly eccentric hit. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but distinctive music never is.
You can check out Short Sharp Scratch’s latest single Shark Infested Waters for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud. Just don’t be surprised if the choruses stick to your synapses like superglue.
