Oxygen Thieves are snarling alt-rock quartet – Alex Fewtrell, Rob Fewtrell, Dan Tilling and Alex Rose – from the Wirral.
They take their influences not only from their surroundings, and my there are many to work with on Merseyside, but also from bands like The Pixies, Television and Sonic Youth to create raw, intense, snarling alt-rock, filled with intense, dark, apprehension. The dark, deep, gritty and raw grind of ‘To Boast’ captures the essence of Oxygen Thieves perfectly. Layers of dissonant guitars, constant driving rhythms and drawled, gritty vocals with a scouse lilt perfectly project dark overtones and add a sense of gripping intensity to proceedings. ‘To Boast’ is but one of many great tracks from their excellent debut EP, We Found the Thieves. Oxygen Thieves ferociously excel with an eruption of vitriolic disillusionment amid wailing guitars, bass riffs and doom laden noise.
We Found The Thieves EP is out now via their own Secret House Records. Stream it in full here.
