Music has been a collaborative and creative experience for Sharky. Finding a cooperative community with UK electronic producers Todd and Guy Speakman (Speakman Sound), the London-based artist’s latest single “Touch” is a passionate poem for a blossoming romance, the petals unfurling to reveal a potpourri of heady perfumes and intoxicating melodies.
Crystallised shards of sugary electronics splinter into a pulsing patchwork of brassy tones as the accompanying visuals follow the artist through the concrete jungle - her solitary figure dappled in the artificial glow of streetlights and passing vehicles.
Sharky’s vocals are distinctive and delicately poised, floating over a rich tapestry of scattered finger clicks and funk-filled guitar melodies. Yearning for intimacy and physical contact, “the beginning of ‘Touch’ celebrates the highs of love from the start,” as Sharky explains.
“The second half is about encouraging the drive to fight for love as it progresses. There are intentional sharp changes, chucking you in and out of the different moods."
