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...
