Shepparton Airplane - Sharks LPWing Sing Records
Shepparton Airplane is a four-piece punk rock band from Melbourne, Australia comprising members of Australian folk heroes The Peep Tempel and Graveyard Train. Sharks is their third album.
Sharks was recorded and mixed at Sing Sing Recording Studios in Melbourne by Anna Laverty (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Courtney Barnett, Florence + The Machine & The Peep Tempel) and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Total Control).
In its 38-odd minutes, the album sees the band diving deeper into shoegaze/noise/psych/punk territory, but manages to find more breathing space than their first two albums, Shepparton Airplane (2016) and Almurta (2018). Whilst the Spiritualized/Husker Du/Sonic Youth influences jump out more, there are Television-esque jams and Stooges/MC5-style wig outs, all the while maintaining an undeniable Australian aesthetic.
