Newcastle's Sharks Took The Rest's sound is an eclectic one, embracing many different genres from jazz to folk and trip-hop to classical. Add to this singer Beccy Owen's haunting Kathyrn Williams-esque vocals and the band's mellow, baroque-pop stylings and you've got a recipe for musical success that's already caught the collective ear of the more discerning DJs on our nation's airwaves, including Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson and Radcliffe & Maconie.
Sharks Took The Rest release their debut five-song EP, Grounds for Hearts to Swell on February 14th through Bandcamp from where, naturally, you can pre-order it and listen to it in its entirety (although perhaps not in that order).
The tracks are all gorgeous but my absolute favourite is probably Ancestors, a live version of which you can watch right here.
