Bio

Thief (formerly Thief Urban) is the new electronic pop project of PJ Wolf. A previous winner of the Triple J Unearthed Top Song competition and recipient of the Foundation for Young Australians Buzz Grant, PJ was recently shortlisted for the prestigious Vanda and Young songwriting competition for his track Closer. Thief was born when PJ traded in his guitars for synthesizers, crafting a fresh minimalist sound that would embrace the aesthetic of contemporaries such as Metronomy, Frank Ocean and N.E.R.D. Tapping the talent of producer Matt Redlich (Emma Louise, Hungary Kids Of Hungary, Yes You) to help out with production and mixing he is now ready to share with the world his debut single Broken Boy in 2013.

I'm a big fan of PJ Wolf's main guise but this Thief Urban stuff is about to win over my affections in a big way. There's a killer Neptunes vibe but like if Pharrell was also really into Hudson Mohawke. Great tune.
