Anyway, I'd like to present this little album by Scottish rock band Sharky Sharky. Their target audience are children, and as far as vocals are concerned, this definitely is written for kids. Yet, musically, there's some serious rocking going on. The sharks in this band are talented musicians who know a thing or two metal. I can hear some influences from epic power metal and some pop punk stuff, like Sum 41 for example.
Lyrical, or course, this isn't really about grown-up stuff. These are songs about playing hide-and-seek with sharks, underwater adventures, friendship and loads of fun. That's why I was a bit weary about this album at first. I don't really like children's music. .However, I don't have kids but if I did, I'd make them listen to Sharky Sharky instead of whatever our Belgian Studio 100 barks out. At least it'll teach the kid some English and the warm joy of real music.
Rocker-dads, rejoice, you might have finally found something that you can both listen when you take your toddler to school or the kindergarten. You can both shake your had and sing along with songs like 'Jake The Jellyfish' or 'When All The Lights Go Out', which is a pretty heavy rocker by the way. Even I, who's usually creeped-out by this happy-happy-joy-joy stuff, am smiling and head-dancing right now.
