Reef Shark traces its roots back to the summer of 2013, when friends and recent Biology graduates Devin Miller and Garth Covernton decided to make an album. By the following summer, the duo had written, recorded, and produced Better Weather, the band's laudable debut. With the help of engineer Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung), Better Weather proved to be a tightly packed medley of surf, garage, and pop songwriting, paired perfectly with rum cocktails and cosmic waves.

One year later, Reef Shark's sophomore release, Mind Race proved the band wasn't afraid to experiment beyond what they first created. Delving into darker themes and soundscapes, as well as adding Matty Jeronimo on guitar and Grady Mackintosh on bass to round out the lineup, Mind Race displayed further maturity for Reef Shark and teased a grittier side of the band.

Now, the band has returned with a second EP. Thanks in part to an in house recording process, with Jeronimo undertaking the work himself, World In Space pushes Reef Shark's sonic boundaries even further. Coupling the '90s-era guitar riffs of Dinosaur Jr. and Built To Spill with Miller's own swarthy, garage rock sensibilities, World In Space looks to solidify Reef Shark's reputation as a dynamic, capable, independent act.

World In Space will be released on July 28th via Big Smoke.
