Abducted By Sharks is a cyberpunk project by Seattle based duo Teo Acosta and Nick Borden. Since 2010 they have played shows in Seattle, Tacoma, Portland and Rochester, NY and released three full length albums, and two five track EPs.
Their eclectic influences lead to a unique sound that can be hard to define. ABS tracks feature a mix of atmospheric synths over heavy industrial drums and catchy melodies being led by driving synthetic guitars interwoven with dark ambient drone.
The music is heavily influenced by their upbringing. Growing up in the metalcore scene in upstate New York, mosh pits and constant breakdowns were a part of their everyday life. Combine that level of intensity with a love for science fiction, synthesizers, and video games and you start to gain an appreciation for what Abducted By Sharks is all about.
With the latest release, “Ronin”, Abducted By Sharks is ready to take you on a dark, gritty ride through the seedy underbelly of a futuristic dystopia.
