We Versus the Shark Ruin Everything!

Hailing from the same southern town that brought us REM and the B-52s comes We Versus the Shark — another act in the fine tradition of Athens, Georgia-based bands attempting to make the music world a more interesting place. Drawing liberally on such influences as Fugazi and other post-punk artcore bands from D.C., WVTS deliver a complicated and challenging blend of math-rock and quirk pop with Dismemberment Plan …Is Terrified-era results. Staccato rhythms, angular guitar licks, and even the odd keyboard and horn blast, make this debut an unpredictable gem. (Hello Sir)
