THICK AS A THEIVES. Thick as a Thieves EP

L'entrada d'avui va totalment lligada al meu estat d'ànim. Avui toca rock amb majúscules. Venen de NYC. L'Ep està gravat a Hoboken i mescla blues, garatge rock i rock alternatiu a parts iguals. Per donar alguna referència vàlida podríem anomenar als White Stripes o fins i tot els Black Keys una mica més aspres i durs. Per escoltar a "nivell elevat", com deien els discs de Hot Tuna.

Howzr: Guitar/Vocals
Chris Moran: Drums/Vocals

Thick as Theives is a bombastic, irreverent rock 'n roll band founded on the back of thunderous drums and gritty, fuzz-fueled guitar riffs.

We have been in the studio (the Vault studios in Hoboken) for the past few months, recording songs for an upcoming album. We are currently mixing the first batch of songs and should have something to release by the end of September!

Thick as Theives has all of the grit and grime of a true American rock band. The duo, comprised of Chris Moran and Howzr boasts a sound that's bluesy and punchy, reminiscent of established duos like The Black Keys and The White Stripes. Their 6-track self-titled EP was released online in November, and features uniquely infectious melodies and an equally hard-edged sound. “I Gotta Girl (With a List of Needs)” starts out with a fuzzy surf-riff reminiscent of Little Barrie’s “Surf Hell” and plunges into pounding drum-heavy solos. “Abilene” is a slower-paced track, complete with drawn out guitar solos and bluesy riffs. Look for their upcoming show at Brooklyn Bowl on March 19th. - Jen Margott
