Brooklyn DIY duo Sharkmuffin has pulled X-Files’ Scully into their world on Scully is a Sharkmuffin, which is lifted from their new album ‘Tsuki’. Explains the band: “’Scully is a Sharkmuffin’ is our ode to The X-Files. It’s the only track on ‘Tsuki’ that is mostly improvised and was recorded live. The lyrics are taken from The X-Files opening theme: ‘The truth is out there. I want to believe. The government lies.’”

More about Sharkmuffin? Sharkmuffin is Tarra Thiessen and Natalie Kirch, a duo of Brooklynite sirens bred from the waves of the Jersey shore. Influenced by everyone from Nirvana to The Ronettes, Sharkmuffin adds a unique jagged edge onto ‘60s beach pop meets ‘90s alt sound, a genre lovingly dubbed “opti-mystic glam-grunge.” With several cross-country tours (including many return trips to SXSW) and no shortage of EPs, Sharkmuffin has been creating a veritable whirlpool of musical chaos. Their 2015 debut LP ‘Chartreuse’ is their most vicious lure, featuring 10 tracks that bleed heavily with feminine rage and cheeky sass alike.
Sharkmuffin is ready to release their sophomore effort ‘Tsuki’ (feat. Kim Deuss on drums) on May 5th, 2017, touring the country this March with their original line-up of Drew Adler on drums and Chris Nunez on second guitar, and plan to serve up their signature cocktails and ice cream by inventing the first punk rock brunch truck. Stay tuned for further deliciousness.
