The Thermals return with one of the catchiest songs in recent times
Seven albums in and it looks like the Thermals, that Hutch Harris, Kathy Foster and Westin Glass to their friends, haven’t started to run out of steam. New albums We Disappear is due in March and lead single Hey You is a short sharp jaunt through fuzzy guitars and shouty vocals, which produces a song that bores into your being with each listen.
As with previous albums, the Thermals, discuss love, death and everything else in between on We Disappear, all wrapped up in their velutinous indie pop sheen. Don’t take our word for it, listen to Hey You more closely. Doesn’t that conjure up images of someone legging it from Death/the Devil, or it is someone running from a loved one? Either way it doesn’t really matter as it’s a complete banger and has successfully blown the dust off from our collective New Year’s malaise.
We Disappear will be released on March 26th by Saddle Creek.
