Even though Brooklyn trio THICK has en around about five years, they’re relatively unknown to a lot of people. Now, signing to Epitaph and dropping a new self-titled E.P. they should become more known and reach a wider group of people. We’re pretty sure you’re going to wonder real fast, where were you when they were starting out, because their music is definitely worth listening to.
The opener “So Sick” lives up to its name, with a snappy pacing and a guitar tone that’s heavy but more visceral than what you may be used to. THICK has no problem bringing a bigger sound here while the multiple vocals add a heft that works on multiple levels while the murky bass and the drums add a lustre to the song. The intensity and breakneck speed on “Your Mom” that couples with the howling vocals and upbeat stride make the song hard to forget. Of course, the standout here is “Green Eyes” where the trio adds a bit of pop structuring to their indie punk sound, creating a song that you won’t soon forget while you bop your head along and hold the lyrics in your head when you sing it back to yourself later.
You can stream the self-titled E.P. on all streaming sites or you can purchase it in all online music stores. THICK will be performing at at Century in Philadelphia, PA on April 12 and at Bovine Sex Club in Toronto, Ontario on April 19.
