I just got done with Thin Fevers practice, the first one in a month, and ran into Thunders on their way into the practice space, and it occurred to me that I owe them a quick post.
Thunders, the band formerly knows as Sisters, featuring ex-members of America Owns The Moon, Those Young Lions, Mara’Akate (Disclosure: I too was in Mara’Akate), We Are Hex, and Ari Ari are releasing a new record, and you can get it at their release show Saturday, June 14th at Spin Nightclub.
I had a chance to preview the record and, it is definitely worth checking out. Part White Stripes, part Led Zeppelin, part French Kicks, and part Gang of Four, Thunders opens the EP with some buzzy bass and quick trums on “MagicSick” and follows withÂ “Gonna Heal Everyone” which brings to mind what the Strokes should be.
I’ll be honest, though, I am sucker for a hook, and the hooks aren’t as obvious in the rest of the EP, as some of the songs break into a slow bluesy jam on “83” and “Take It Like A Thief”, Â a bit psychadelic on “Somnambulist” and the record ends with the quiet, but vocally layered “Letter To The Priest.”
This is definitely a band to watch.
