Cuddly Shark: The Road To Ugly

Glasgow trio Cuddly Shark are exactly that: lovable with fangs. The Road To Ugly is an upbeat album, utterly danceable and punch-you-in-the-face lyrics. They sing about weight issues (Body Mass Index), have some sound advice about self-esteem (Overpriced), and sharp-tongued adversaries (Trigger Happy). They can let rip like the Pixies used to do in high energy songs Pull The Finger Out and My iPod Made Me Do It.

With the acoustic put-down song The Devil In You and the lament Local Hero the trio shows off their softer musical side, but as a whole The Road To Ugly has a fist-pumping anthemic vibe. Good times from Glasgow, even when times are bad.
