LISTEN: Get Your Toes Wet with Shark Week and the Sandy Track “Why Did I Let You Go?”

The group’s debut Beach Fuzz is out May 19 on PaperCup Music

As we get closer and closer to beach season (sorry, East Coast), it’s time to start thinking about shaking last year’s sand out of your shoes, and prepping a new summer playlist designed to be played with the windows down. Here to help with that are the Washington, D.C.–based surf/garage band Shark Week, who have shared the track “Why Did I Let You Go?” from their upcoming full-length debut Beach Fuzz.

It’s a nifty, sprawled-out number that features equal slices of Tom Petty and New York Dolls into the (pizza) pie of their sound, with maybe a dash of Spacemen 3 seasoning on top. Goes nice with a Tecate and a day off (or maybe a “sick day” if necessary). Remember, guys: live every week like it’s shark week.

The band have a handful of tour dates to kick off season, catch them live:
