Track of the Week: Shark Teeth - Work & Romance

Leeds is fertile ground for indiepop right now, and Shark Teeth's new EP contains this pretty gem

Released: 30th April
Get It: Ltd CD / Download

Despite beating him to the name, Dev Hynes change in moniker from Lightspeed Champion to Blood Orange necessitated this Leeds indiepop gang changing their name from Blood Oranges to Shark Teeth. Which is how we find them now having today released their EP Wanna Get Drunk And Fool Around?.

As inviting as that title is Monday morning might not be the best time to participate. What Monday morning is the best time for however is devouring what we think is the top track of the week, and this Monday it's the highlight from said EP, the gentle and tender 'Work & Romance'.

Building from the softer intro, 'Work & Romance' swells up to British Sea Power levels of bracing brilliance, before calming itself back down again. Carried on a romantic guitar line and helped along by male-female harmonies and tottering drums, it's a classic little indiepop number and one to draw you into the rest of the super little EP.

After you've wrapped your ears around this you can also find their previous single 'The French Word For Love', released under their old name, for free download on their old Bandcamp page.

Keep Pop Loud
