The Canadian indie-pop outfit returns with an anthemic new single and their first release of 2019.
Fake Shark's new single is an anthemic shot of energy, the sound of the band closing ranks with an arena-rock feel.
The Vancouver group's latest release is their first since last year's Walking Through a Fantasy, and now, in an exclusive Popdust premiere, Fake Shark shares "Invincible," the next chapter in the band's story.
A staccato piano introduces the track, followed close behind by lead singer Kevvy's murmured vocals, racking up the song's tension. "Feel like I've been on the run forever," Kevvy confesses, just before the chorus arrives over echoing guitars and booming drums. Fake Shark's brawny sound tears the song open, while Kevvy's slick vocals promise that the band isn't going anywhere: "Invincible" is the sound of Fake Shark insisting on their own presence.
"We've been through so much together, and we're still here and we're not going anywhere because we've only just scratched the surface of our potential," Kevvy says of the story behind "Invincible." "We've all been to hell and back together, been hit with everything this industry can throw at us and we keep coming back." "Invincible" kicks off a new phase in Fake Shark's career with characteristic vigor, and it's anyone's guess what's next.

Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
We know Ellis Ross is fun and has an offbeat style, but her hairstyle felt like a caricature, and one that was completely unnecessary because there are Black women who have the kind of hair she seemed to be trying to mimic.
Black hair is political.
It is still a radical act for Black people to wear our hair just as it grows out of our heads.
Just as Black people are diverse, Black hair is inclusive of a broad range of colors, textures, density, and porosity. Terms like 3B and 4C are commonly used to describe hair types. While some people still think of hair types as a grading scheme, much like the debate about having "good hair," we are learning more about how hair types have specific care needs. As we grow deeper in love with ourselves and our hair, Black people are looking for the best products on the market and are committed to supporting Black businesses.
When Tracee Ellis Ross announced the launch of Pattern Beauty, there was a lot of buzz and excitement. A Black woman we love and whose hair has always been an unapologetically overwhelming feature was going to respond to Black hair care needs. Sign us up! Now, however, with her Elle magazine cover, some Black women are wondering if Ross is taking up too much of the Black hair space.
