With the release of "Stumble", Scared of Sharks takes the best parts of heavy rock genres and creates something all their own. Laced with addictive melodies, hard hitting undertones, and plenty of character, the record boasts the aesthetic of grunge and garage rock anthems. 


"This song is about when you get down in the dumps about things but then shrugging them off and moving on,” explains Taylor Schwifty of their single. 

"Stumble" will be the first song to be released from Scared of Sharks Debut EP due out later in the year and the band aims to support that with a small run of shows in June.

Originally hailing from Mogareeka, Scared of Sharks got together in 2016 to play the Cobargo folk festival by Taylor Shwifty and brother Jack Malolakis. 

After relocating to Wollongong in 2017, the band focused on playing gigs for the next few years until Jack left to go traveling in Europe late 2022 and Taylor Roped in Tim Jong Un on Drums, Loui Crouton on Bass and began gigging up and down the east coast of Australia.

The band released the "Ode to Rose St." single in January and received great feedback at live performances and the band is proud to have release "Stumble". 

"I think our sound has gotten a bit heavier with the lineup changes with jack leaving in 2022 being replaced by Tim on the drums and the addition of Loui on bass. With our sound becoming a little more polished and a little less Lofi," says Taylor Schwifty of the evolution in creating music together. 

"Stumble" is available for streaming and download on all major music outlets and the band is already ramping up for more live shows.
