Last time we saw Shara Worden, aka My Brightest Diamond, she was covering Roy Orbison by her lonesome at our SXSW party. She’s back with her own material, backed by what sounds like an army of strings, piano twinkles, drums, and windy atmospherics. See, Worden’s all set to follow-up her 2006 debut Bring Me The Workhorse with the self-produced A Thousand Shark’s Teeth. So far all we’ve heard is the massive, urgent opening tack “Inside A Boy” — it’s a stunner with a great crunching guitar sound that has us hoping the rest of Shark uses all its teeth.
My Brightest Diamond – “Inside A Boy” (MP3)
What’s “Inside A Boy”? A thousand stars. What’s inside this girl? One helluva voice.
A Thousand Shark’s Teeth is out 6/17 on Asthmatic Kitty.
