THICK: New Favourite Band

We starting crushing on Brooklyn’s Thick when they released ‘Bumming Me Out‘ last month, but with the release of ‘Mansplain’ this week, they are now officially our New Favourite Band today. These patriarchy-poking pop-punkers deliver here just over two minutes of grrrl-gang vocals over fuzzy guitars, and a hard-relatable wry critique of the men who like to tell us how to do the things we know full well how to do. Bums to those guys.

Thick’s debut studio album ‘5 Years Behind’ is out now on Epitaph Records.

THICK: Bumming Me out – video of the day

Video of the day today comes from Brooklyn’s THICK – ‘Bumming Me Out’. We are absolutely loving the Stranger Things-meets-Scream vibe of the video, the perfect setting for the band’s playfully retro indie-pop-punk track.

 “It’s one of our more vulnerable songs lyrically, so it was important to inject the video with some playfulness. We collaborated on the concept with Nic Henry (director). He had wanted to introduce the ‘Chill Reaper’ character for a while, so we worked him into the slumber party story, as the night gets weirder and weirder. We constructed the set in Nikki’s bedroom as a throwback to our own bedrooms growing up, so there’s also a sense of nostalgia throughout.”

THICK is Nikki Sisti (guitar, vocals), Kate Black (bass, vocals, guitar), and Shari Page (drums, vocals). The single is from the band’s forthcoming debut album ‘5 Years Behind’, out 6 March on Epitaph Records.
