Local surf-rock quartet, Shark Rider, features members from various other Austin bands that found commonality in the sun-drenched Summer vibes of rowdy beach music. Borrowing heavily from classic surf-rock pioneers like the Ventures and Dick Dale, Shark Rider mixes in their own signature sauce of New Wave hooks and infectious choruses. Shark Rider is releasing their first EP, "A Day In Paradise", which as its name suggests, functions as a perfect score to uplifting outdoor activities and night-long parties. The EP's first featured single "I've Arrived" bounces to clean-cut to guitar strumming and dual melodic vocals, courtesy of Nowell Maluski and Joe Gardner. High-energy drumming, jangled guitars, and soaring choruses define this new upstart band that should be instigating beach parties throughout Austin venues very soon.
