Coat of Arms by Sharkness - album reviewby Morgan.J
Carefully cast accompanists bring to life cunning unpredictable pop songs, which seem to draw equally on surrealism and childhood memories.
For most of the past decade, Robin Hinckley has fronted underrated Wellington band Good Laika. But it is under the name Sharkness that he presents COAT OF ARMS (Independent), his first solo set of songs, in which he swaps Good Laika’s live dynamics for colourful studio-constructed atmospheres. Carefully cast accompanists (marshalled by Hinckley’s chief collaborator, Age Pryor) bring to life cunning unpredictable pop songs, which seem to draw equally on surrealism and childhood memories.
