tom briese goddamn, this is just too tasty. The drumming is so solid and the guitar tones are wonderful. It's like modest mouse and number girl had a beautiful child. Favorite track: Sell.

about

Sell & Shark is Leavings' debut release and the first single from their forthcoming LP. On side A is "Sell", a reckless punk rock clanger in which the band belts out grumpy yells drenched in reverb over the top of a collection of distorted major key hooks played at full tilt. Exclusive to the 7" is a brooding slab of noise rock in the form of B-side "Shark". The track begins quietly with a faint, nervous guitar riff and muted, tense drumming encircled by a menacing bassline which swims around them tightly until all three instruments attack each other, exploding into dissonant fuzz and dry screaming. Together, the songs represent the band's response to the frustration of living in an Australia whose leaders become nastier and more cynical with each passing year. "Sell" is defiantly spirited while "Shark" is the band at their grumpiest, but not without a sense of humour. Both tracks were recorded in Brisbane at Tym Guitars with Donovan Miller (FOREVR, No Anchor) over one weekend in the winter of 2016.

Vinyl copies ship with one of two different photo inserts. All photos are included with downloads.
