New Tunes: Shark Victim, "It Goes Down"

Posted By on Thu, May 2, 2013 at 11:36 AM


Shark Victim


We've been anxiously awaiting the debut from Shark Victim since the local duo debuted last fall. A collaboration between Lendway's Mike Clifford (grimy-ass bass) and Jess Mateik (grimy-ass drums, druggy vocals), the musicians describe themselves as "chaos pop," which sounds about right. In a Soundbites column last November, I submitted that they reminded me of "Dum Dum Girls run through an organ grinder." Based on "It Goes Down," an advance cut from their forthcoming EP, which SV just released on Bandcamp, let's stick with that description for now.

Shark Victim's debut EP is due out in June — on tape, no less. But here's the track to tide you over. Enjoy.
