The rapturous applause when Things Found In Sharks mount the stage is evidence enough of just how popular this band has become since it’s debut less than six months ago. 

The crowd start requesting songs before the band has even started.  When they do start playing several faces in the room start singing along word for word, drinks held high in the air in rowdy approval.

 The niche that Things Found In Sharks have carved for themselves in this town of many bands is all about the songs.  Bouncy verses nicely separated by powerful and excellently delivered pop choruses that give you the feeling that you have been let into an early secret and before long you’ll be hearing those tunes from a radio speaker. 

As with all great bands Things Found in Sharks are excellent through the sum of very different parts; bassist Barnie Mills is renowned in Ipswich for his previous hardcore bands and singer ‘J Bear’ brings the experience from his acting career to give audiences a real performance leagues ahead of the ‘stand still and pout’ approach of most bands.

The Things Found In Sharks sound is somewhere along the lines of the lovechild of Dinosaur Jnr and Crowded House, the hit ‘em till they break approach of drummer Max Shearer brings in a Led Zeppelin style power to the sound that separates this band from dreary wishy washing indie bands that pepper the charts at the moment.  Go and see Things Found In Sharks and in years to come you’ll have something special to tell the grandkids.
