The latest single from Leeds-based Pool Sharks is stacked full of high octane energy and thrills.
Indie and garage rock have often gone hand in hand, and Leeds-based Pool Sharks latest single ‘Closing In’ is the latest example of how effectively the two can be married. Sounding like the bastard love-child of The Strokes and The Cribs, the track takes gritty British indie rock sensibilities and injects them with the unforgiving riffs of acts like The Strokes and The White Stripes.
The result is a sound that feels frenetic and raw, built for sweaty live shows. ‘Closing In’ has big riffs and even bigger hooks, borrowing from a range of genres around the rock spectrum to craft something that feels vital and new, while maintaining its distinctive edge.
