Quick Review: The Thirst - On The Brink

The Thirst
On The Brink
Wooden Records

It takes a brave band to wean me off my hourly dose of grime, baseline and all things bumpy, and The Thirst are just that; welding indie, the odd ballad and a touch of ska with mechanical precision. Not only do their refreshingly vibrant tales of kids who'd "rather play on a Station", good ol' Acre Lane, and drinking Stella "on the back of the bus" make you wanna shake the person next to you but their catchy studio sounds are in sync with their live aura. These boys are definitely on the brink of something big... NME you're slipping.
