|Now typically we wouldn’t feature a "signed" band on the site, but our relationship with the gents in Sharks goes back a long way. Not only did we have the pleasure of ringing in 2009 with them on a frozen lake, but they also dropped by our studio to perform an acoustic session for us. A session, which holds a very special place in our musical life because it featured one of the very early versions of "No Gods", the title track of their forthcoming album (of the same name).
