Desert Sharks - I Know What I Want
I first saw Desert Sharks last July when they were the opening band for Diarrhea Planet at Shea Stadium. I had no idea who they were prior to their taking the stage, but once they did I couldn’t stop watching. They were so self-assured, so together, and insanely catchy; not things many opening bands can cop to having. After the show, I immediately downloaded their demo, and it has been on constant rotation for the better part of the last six months. As such, I was hotly anticipating their newest EP Sister Cousins. “I Know What I Want” is the first track off the album, which was released earlier this week (I forget when). The track finds Desert Sharks doing what they do best: catchy surfy riffs over love-lorn vocals. Take a listen and then go buy Sister Cousins over at their bandcamp.
