Single: Lisbon - 'Shark'

Picking up a more immediate pace, Lisbon inject an imminent sense of peril into their reverb drenched intro. As sneering, hungry guitar lines circle grave drum rhythms and percussion lightly darts in and out of the soundscape, Lisbon have taken on a darker persona to depict the cut throat nature of the music industry. It's not all doom and gloom though, just past the mid way mark, Lisbon embrace warmer arrangements that skitter like a celebratory school of fish who have just narrowly averted danger, before Lisbon heighten the intensity again with tension building arrangements and a vocal sample cut from Jaws, explosively bringing back the threat.
'Shark' embraces a theatrical side to Lisbon where they call upon suspenseful intstrumentation and sampling to bring the track to dramatic, climactic heights. All the while holding firm to that anthemic, indie kick that people love so much in the first place.
