Coming across as if it were born of  an unholy union between the Ramones and Back Sabbath, New York’s Desert Sharks will excite and entertain new listeners in equal measure. Watch the video for Sorceress and you’ll soon know why.

Dirty, fuzzy and full of energy, Sorceress harnesses a catchy, crunching guitar melody to a raw, rough and tumble percussion and rumbling bass sound. The lyrics and vocals are empowering and upfront, taking a Riot grrrl aesthetic and giving the song both a sense of danger as well as being a declaration of intent.

Sorceress by Desert Sharks is out now via Substitute Scene Records and there’s also a vinyl release for their Baby’s Gold Death Stadium album on the way. For background on the band, news on upcoming live dates and further releases, head on over to their Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts.
