Shark Week | Go West

May 18, 2013 at 2:20 pm Leave a comment

Love this track. Shark Week’s single “Go West” begins with a lyrical metaphor that balances between an all-consuming love and a story about drowning: “I’m on the edge of the shore / I was searching for more / Then I found you … / Inside your ocean / What a commotion.” The music is a cool blending of jangly indie-pop guitar, straight rock n’ roll, and slurry deep-voiced punk vocals. Pretty backing melodies accent the song’s doomed tone with a sense the antagonist is more than happy to wallow in his supposed state of doom. Anyway, isn’t love a kind of despair? The rhythm of the song and the hyperbolic lyrics keep the track fun, away from ever seeming self-serious. “Go West” will be featured on an upcoming double-sided 7-inch called “Santurce”, along with a second track, “Baby Maybe”, out July 30 via Analog Edition. — David D. Robbins Jr.
