Desert Sharks, who have been captivating the Brooklyn underground scene for the better part of a decade, return with a new record this Spring called The Tower, out March 31. Second single, ‘Medusa’ is out now.
“Medusa is this Greek mythological icon of power, sensuality, and strength in the face of assault and trauma. Growing up, I only saw her referred to as a monster – something to be feared and destroyed,” explains lead vocalist and bassist Stephanie Gunther. “Now I see her as this symbol of feminism and fortitude that not even death can diminish. I wanted to write a song about her experience told from her own perspective. I suppose it’s an anthem of feminine rage and reclamation of power.”
