Sharkboy are an alternative rock band from Brighton, England, formed in the early 1990s by Avy, the lead singer, songwriter and guitarist. They released two albums in the mid-1990s and the current outfit consists of 3 of the original members: Avy, Adrian Oxaal and Dil Davies. The band was formed in the early 1990s by the Preston-born Avy (vocals, guitar), recruiting American-born Oxaal (guitar, cello, keyboards) and t Gavin Cheyne on bass.

Sacramento Child" starts the album on a slow, entrancing note with a marvelous chorus - the keyboards in particular really make it - while "Road," the one co-written track on the album (with guitarist Gavin Cheyne) and "Sugar" both do wonders as understated country/psych ballads. There's a hint of Opal in their sound - as opposed to Mazzy Star - which is quite involving.
