Hip-hop und pop have always been friendly neighbours. Vienna-based Sharktank finally have them married happily ever after. What started off as a solo project of rapper Mile quickly became a band when young singer Katrin Paucz joined the studio session Mile held at renowned producer Marco Kleebauer’s studio (he famously produced several award-winning and chart-topping albums from bands like Bilderbuch, Oehl and his own band, Leyya).

Their joint debut “Washed Up” hit the airwaves right after release and immediately gained major traction on Spotify  and radio stations. 

Katrin’s magic vibe and lyrics on the sensitive difficulties of life and relationships are encountered by Marco’s positively-quirky production and conscious rap lines of Mile. The combination of these characters are what makes the band so special. Not to mention simply great tunes to sing along, dance to and get lost in.

After a number of hit singles and EP’s, they released their first full album in 2021, “Get It Done”.
