about

Hello Shark’s Linc Halloran writes heart-wrenching pop songs of young love & aimlessness, loaded with perfectly vivid turns of phrase that bloom & wilt all at once. The stories are uplifting for their familiarity, & hilarious for their humility. More than anything, though, they ache with thousands of small regrets. Disappointment & romance are everywhere, if you look hard enough.

This limited edition cassette release collects Hello Shark’s beloved first two albums, 2011’s Break Arms & 2013’s H.S., both originally released on compact disc by Burst and Bloom Records. The collection commemorates Hello Shark’s “classic” Burlington, VT line-up (Alex Decato on drums, Sean Hood on bass, & Linc Halloran on guitar & vocals) from way back when the world was young, before the wind blew Linc to Philadelphia, PA.

Listening to young Linc’s words & voice on these recordings remind me of waking up in a sleeping bag on a bare mattress on a cold morning, blearily remembering the night before, wondering how the sand got in my shoes. They remind me of window sills full of empties, & texts unsent because my phone died. They remind me of parents’ hand-me-down Volvo station wagons filled with boxes & books, moving my life away from a college town where I did not attend college, & crossed fingers for better luck elsewhere.
