Brooklyn's SHARKMUFFIN Shows Off "Leather Gloves" via The Le Sigh, Album out Friday + NYC Release Show

SHARKMUFFIN

"LEATHER GLOVES"
DEBUTS VIA THE LE SIGH

TSUKI OUT MAY 5 VIA LITTLE DICKMAN RECORDS
+    RELEASE SHOW MAY 3 AT SUNNYVALE

“Brooklyn’s Sharkmuffin is the musical embodiment of Whitman’s famous adage, ‘I contain multitudes.”…like glitter dredged in hot, sticky tar.”  – The Le Sigh
“Sharkmuffin are either the most glam garage band around, or the grungiest glam band around.” –NPR
“…new punks with old school sensibilities…this is a vicious band with plenty of teeth.” – Consequence of Sound
“Brooklyn’s Sharkmuffin play scuzzy, ornery glam-rock with a strut – think T. Rex by way of Hole, or perhaps a more acrid Sweet.” CLYVYNT


Ahead of their sophomore album release, Sharkmuffin opens up and gets personal with “Leather Gloves”, now streaming exclusively via The Le Sigh. The track delivers emotionally charged lyrics, backed by Sharkmuffin’s signature garage-crunch sound with a bit more echo and a jangly percussion beat, a bit more Ride than Hole this time. The band adds another new touch -- first-time lead vocals from bassist Natalie Kirch! Kirch had this to say about the track:
“Without getting too specific, ‘Leather Gloves’ is about unrequited love and the feelings associated with that. It is the first song I have ever sang lead on for Sharkmuffin, I'm still working up the courage to sing it on stage, but I promised my bandmates I'd premiere it live at our Tsuki record release [May 3 at Sunnyvale, Brooklyn].

Tsuki will be released this Friday, May 5, via Little Dickman Records. Check out Sharkmuffin’s upcoming inaugural UK tour dates, including an album release spectacular with Alexander F, Weeping Icon, Sic Tic and Pink Mexico, below.
