Fake Shark have a “Bummer Summer” on new single


What are your plans for the summer? Chilling at the pool? Catching up on summer reading? Taking a trip somewhere new? Whatever you end up doing, make sure you stay out of trouble, or else you could have a “Bummer Summer,” as Fake Shark tell us on their new single.

With “Bummer Summer,” Vancouver alt-rock act Fake Shark give us the anti-song of the summer. Over lively guitar, driving bass, and dramatic drum riffs, lead vocalist Kevin Maher reflects on his latest moves, noting how they have placed him in a lonely situation. With a straightforward attitude, he sings, “Aye oh, no place to go / Nowhere to call home / Such a bummer summer / Aye oh, nowhere to go / But one thing I know / It’s a bummer summer,” realizing that he may have burned his bridges too soon. You can check it out below.

About “Bummer Summer,” Fake Shark explain,

“‘Bummer Summer’ is a song about people who burn lots of bridges, thinking there will be no repercussions for their actions, and then feel sorry for themselves. I wrote it from the perspective of someone who hurts everyone around them and then is surprised to find themselves alone while everyone else is enjoying themselves and it was their own fault. It was fun to think so sarcastically and put myself in their shoes.”

You can listen to “Bummer Summer,” and previous releases like “Save Me” and “Paranoid” on platforms like SoundCloud, Apple Music, and Spotify.
