Brooklyn-based surf punk chicks Desert Sharks have a new EP out today, Sister Cousins. It’s their second since getting together in the fall of 2011. The band has shared the stage with local darlings The So So Glos and Diarrhea Planet, as well as Paul Weller (of the Jam) and the Coathangers.
You can listen to the 3-song EP below, and if you like what you hear (if you’re into Vivian Girls, Dum Dum Girls, Best Coast, etc. -garage-y 60′s rock with a strong and unique female vocalist- you will), the band is planning a physical 7″ for sometime in March. Today, the lead-off song “I Know What I Want” is available to download free via Converse Rubber Tracks (where the EP was recorded) HERE.
Desert Sharks are playing a release show at Shea Stadium this Thursday with Hard Nips, Heliotropes, and Hippy. No ticket info yet, I’d assume $7-10 at the door. Keep updated with the Facebook event.
