Sharkweek

Bio

Sharkweek is the solo electronica project of Peter Lewis from The Tom Bosley Experience.

With an ongoing interest in outer space and pop culture, and drawing inspiration from the likes of The Orb, Orbital and Future Sound Of London, he filters these influences through his unique sensibilities to produce something new, yet also familiar.

His debut album 'The Hammerhead Nebula' collects the best new Sharkweek tracks as well as revamped and reworked versions of old favourites.

A rich blend of lush electronica, sometimes-busy beats, and manipulated found sounds are complemented by vocal samples from a wide variety of sources including a NASA scientist (who gave his blessing to the project), obscure infomercials and a fine pair of talented Wellington vocalists. You'll hear elements of pop, ambient, dub, and experimental styles in Sharkweek songs, but there's always something recognisably Sharkweek about them! It's music that's simple yet dense, spacey without being formless, and humourous without being silly.

Reference points and influences include - as well as the above - Boards Of Canada, Lemon Jelly, Astralasia, Banco de Gaia, and New Zealand luminaries like Module and Pitch Black.

'The Hammerhead Nebula' is now available from the Electrode website, Real Groovy and SmokeCDs.
