Sometimes writing for Noisey means alerting people when the police are using facial recognition technology at concerts. Other times, it means watching a video of a guy shaving his face. Above is the premiere of Brooklyn-based band Shark?'s new video which—guess what—involves one of the deadpan dudes from Shark? having a simple shave.
This every day scenario speedily descends into insanity. Blonde boys lick sundae toppings off our once-bearded friend’s head as a semi-naked man in a wolf hat cavorts in the background. Throw in a heavy dose of clown facepaint, some spaghetti harassment, and our protagonist is getting much more of a makeover than he probably bargained for. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of booze present to dull the humiliation.
As for the song itself, it's scuzzy, minimalist lo-fi at its best, and it features just one refrain: “BIG SUMMER'S HERE!” May it never end.
You can even buy "Big Summer" if you want. It's out via Old Flame Records.
