We say

If you haven’t yet come across the glorious avant-soul sounds of Sharky, then let us introduce you to the London-based artist with this, the lead track from her excellent debut EP Fruit. Her early work with electronic producers Todd and Guy Speakman from Speakman Sound caught the attention of Gilles Peterson at 6 Music, and Jamz Supernova at 1Xtra, and tastemaker support from Indie Shuffle and Earmilk among others. Now the duo return on production duties to help her craft an EP full of absolute gems. From the playful and funky beat infested title track to the psychedelic craziness of Romanian Moths and this sultry groove-based number, the EP is a gorgeous blend of leftfield electronica, abstract jazz and Sharky’s ethereal vocals. Tracks from the EP have picked up praise from the Line of Best Fit, Quietus, and Notion, plus streaming support at Amazon and YouTube Music. Having been awarded the PRS Women Make Music fund earlier this year, she sold-out the Bermondsey Social Club and will follow this with a show at The Victoria in Dalston on 11 September. A must-listen for any discerning music fan.
