Our latest Artist To Watch, We Were Sharks are hitting the road early in 2018 to gear up for the release of their brand new album Lost Touch on February 23rd. The album is called Lost Touch but We Were Sharks haven’t lost touch with the genuine feeling and joy that pop punk brings to the entire scene.
“Beyond Repair” kicks off the album like shattering the glass walls surrounding the album. Lost Touch as a whole shows the obvious personal and musical growth of the band from their previous releases and brings them to the forefront of the genre. We Were Sharks are poised to take their rightful spot on the list of our favorite releases for 2018 so far.
“Hotel Beds” is a stand out track with the bouncey scream along chorus and contrasting verses. However, “Stay” is the pinnacle of the album. Lyrically and musically, “Stay” is the closest the band comes to radio perfection on the album which should be more than enough to push them through to Summer song playlist domination.
Broadside’s Ollie Baxter brings his sugary sweet vocals on “Late Bloomer.” The track centers on the topic of keeping a hold on things you loved when you were young. Ollie brings that something we were missing and really catapults the album through to the end.
Lost Touch is a solid listen start to finish filled with odes to the glory days of pop punk and sing along choruses. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for We Were Sharks!
