Eek... it's been a while.

umm yep... all's well and sweet. We've finished Silly Killings (the new album), and it'll be released on March 17th. We're looking forward to playing the new songs live this summer... we'll be adding some more shows to the shows page on our website soon.

Last night we played a show at a big, beautiful church downtown (Trinitatis)... good fun. Hopefully it wasn't too obvious that none of us have spent much (/any) time in churches... we tried to keep the cursing to a minimum.

Our release party will be at Loppen on March 13th.

said the shark debut album Oct 2006

Album of the year (national tv-show Liga)
Among the top ten Danish albums of 2006 (Danish national radio)
Among the top ten albums of 2006 (Soundvenue Magazine)

An album so subtle and beautiful, the quiet release of Said the Shark´s debut album "Always Prattling on About Wolves" will only add to the mystery surrounding the band. Canadian singer & songwriter Maya Saxell teams up with Danish Kim Oxlund to deliver a record described as rare. Maya has received high praise for her quirky and clever use of the language. The tracks you can hear on the Iwave player speak for themselves.

"Hauntingly artful, Said The Shark captures the excitement of gifted young artists taking flight. It makes you nostalgic for something you've never had. These aren't just lovely songs; they're elegant, poetic, and most important (and most unusual these days), truthful." -David Gilmour, Winner of Canada's Governor-General's Award for Fiction."

.Gaffa Magazine
"...Beautiful instrumental adornments wonderfully and discreetly point to Saxell's vocal qualities... The calm is slowly transformed into a kind of melancholic magic... very exhilarating for the listening ear..."

Soundvenue Magazine
"... A subtle and tenderly worked album... Saxell's amazingly beautiful, near-whispering voice sends tickles and shivers down your spine... They create a fragile, trembling universe... in its own crushing, level-headed manner, the stillness never becomes boring. Said The Shark has a disarming nerve and a heartfelt presence while an underlying layer of teasing hesitation holds your interest and pushes you below the dead-calm surface"

Denmark's National Radio P3
"... A quiet and mysterious album from start to finish... Conscientious and enchanting... Has its own powerful and hypnotic personality... Saxell's voice reminds a bit of a soft P.J. Harvey... I can't think of an album that I'd rather listen to in the evenings right now."

Urban daily paper
“It’s damn difficult to keep the intensity with so few means, but Saxell’s vocals pull the quirky sketches up to true beauty.”

Where2go magazine
“’always prattling on about wolves’ is a unique album in every way… Extremely addictive.

Politiken daily paper
"'always prattling on about wolves' is delicate and sensitive ... deserves attention."
