Imaginary Music is the long-awaited debut album from La Shark, released April 27th on Tape Music. On Imaginary Music La Shark fuse elements of pop, funk, art rock and post punk indie into a their own distinctive, jaw-dropping sound.
Based in south-east London and compromising of N.H.A. Buxton on Drums, Samuel Geronimo Deschamps on Vocals, Sami El-Enany on Keys, Benjamin Francis Markham on Guitar, and Lou-Lou Maynard on Bass, La Shark have a sense of adventure and lust for the unknown that is rare in an era of career-ist artists.
La Shark’s incendiary and unpredictable live shows have earned them a cult following and comparisons to Faith No More and Red Hot Chili Peppers. They have toured with Cibelle, Mumford & Sons, and The Maccabees, leading Felix White to tell the NME “I hope one day the world can appreciate how amazing La Shark are. We need bands like them”.
La Shark have previously released a series of attention-grabbing singles, including the Radio 1 playlisted tracks Magazine Cover and A Weapon. Imaginary Music is the band’s first full studio album, and follows La Shark Yearbook, a 3 x CD collection of the band’s music from 2006 – 2013, which came packaged with a handmade journal telling the bands story in their own words.
The first single from the album is the AA side AAA / World Wide Babes, also out 27th April.
“Noisy-brilliant. La Shark are all kinds of ace...”Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music.
“In a world far too full of predictable, paint by numbers music, La Shark are the breath of fresh air that comes along far too rarely. Magical, messed up stuff” Music Week
