Short Sharp Scratch – Shark Infested Waters: Eccentrically Experimental

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.

A Pocket Full of Wonder is set to release their acoustic Pop delight “Destination Everywhere”

A Pocket Full of Wonder

“Destination Everywhere” is the sweet Funk-soaked acoustic Pop hit from up and coming artist A Pocket Full of Wonder.

Through the reverberant hum of the basslines, the up-vibe guitar intricacies, and the resonantly harmonious vocals, Destination Everywhere inarguably breathes new life into acoustic pop.

The melodic hooks and the richly textured instrumental arrangement make sure that Destination Everywhere is not a track which you’ll forget in a hurry. And it won’t even be an earworm you come to rest thanks to the infectiously rhythmic distinction which the single offers. It’s soulful, it’s cathartic, and it has got us all too excited to hear what will be coming next from A Pocket Full of Wonder.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out A Pocket Full of Wonder’s latest single which will be available via SoundCloud.
