Since they formed at the beginning of last year – on the basis that they were bored of the pubs – THIEVES have become something of a recognised name around Birmingham. They released their debut EP, Lacking In Guile, and since then their popularity has only served to grow. Dubbed as ‘slacker brit-pop,’ the band make music to make you feel good.
The bands lastest demo, ‘Pass The Time’ (below) serves to highlight the bands raw talent. Whilst the track may be a little rough around the edges – as a result of “hangover syndrome” according to the band – its a roughness that serves the band well. Combining infectious layers of guitar melodies with a driving drumbeat and catchy vocals, THIEVES prove that even when they’re not their personal best, they can still make music that’ll blow your mind.
You can catch THIEVES supporting T A S T E (formerly The Artois) at The Sunflower Lounge next Friday June 14.
