New Orleans synth-pop outfit Sharks' Teeth has made over sixteen albums within the last decade, and this September 2, as a four-piece are putting out their first physical release, It Transfers & Grows. Within the album are seven different synths that weave with samples to create a sweetness of melody reminiscent of Rostam Batmanglij and Ra Ra Riot's Wesley Miles's electronic-rock project Discovery, and sparkling refrains that conjure Tears For Fears.

“We recorded It Transfers & Grows at home, in a room filled wall to wall with synthesizers, drum machines, Laurie Anderson records, vocoders, and more," the band's Tyler Scurlock wrote in a note to The FADER about the new record. "Each sound either comes directly from organic samples of the real world or from our array of electronic equipment. No soft synths were used, no midi synchronization, just some hands on some synths twisting and turning the knobs into space.” Listen below.
