hmv's Next Big Thing... #260 THICK

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Brooklyn punks THICK...

 

Who Are They?

THICK are a trio consisting of vocalist/guitarist Nikki Sisti, bassist/vocalist Kate Black and drummer Shari Page. Initially formed in 2013 after Sisti placed an ad on notorious US virtual noticeboard Craigslist looking for a drummer, the trio have toured released a series of acclaimed EPs. 

Now part of punk powerhouse label Epitaph, they unveiled their debut album 5 Years Behind last week. You can purchase it here. 

 

What Do They Sound Like?

The trio's influences are a collage of riot grrl and pop-punk. You can hear Bikini Kill and Sleater-Kinney in there, but there's also the warmth of Weezer and the cold-eared desire for a chorus of Blink-182. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

Power, punk and passion, it's a great combination. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

For sure. Their new jam and the album's title track is below for you...
