Bio

In march 2014, Thieves took time off from performing live to do some writing. Trying to pull their focus away from heavy drinking and constant procrastination thieves managed to pull things together and write their debut album. Heavily influenced at the time by prolific story-tellers such as Nick Cave, Neil Young, Jay Laffer, Gareth Lidiard and Tim Winton a twisted melancholic narrative about a trouble Australian family was created.

After months of writing and draining rehearsals thieves decided it was time to find where they would track the record. Romanticising with the idea of creating a organic and gritty live sound they chose the amazing Linear Studios in Sydneys leichcardt. In June Thieves met with producer Dorny Mayes the plan the recording. With only a shoe-string budget at their disposal they chose to track live over two days. This decision gave birth to ‘Mary’, their most organic and honest efforts as a band yet.

i've seen this live and the sheer weight of it made my heart wobble. This version is a little more restrained, but no less mighty.

This is how original Aussie rock should sound. Interesting lyrics, good instrumentation, great melodies and awesome beats! Love this song!
