Boomkat Product Review:
Not the most likely of zoological face-offs, the premise of Monkey Vs. Shark is helpfully illustrated by artwork depicting the titular beasts grappling in someone's bedroom. It's with some surprise then that Thee More Shallows' song of the same name is as poignant - even anthemic, as it transpires to be. once the distorted drums and stadium-sized dynamics simmer down, drone interval 'INT' segues into countrified post-rocker 'Dutch Slaver'. It's another winner, taking on a comparably epic scale to 'Monkey Vs. Shark' itself. Wrapping up the EP, Odd Nosdam shows up as a remixer, panning his mucky beatbox sounds in a highly disorientating fashion, but essentially maintaining an a fist-pumping rock band dynamic.
