If big riffing acts like Muse and Silversun Pickups appeal, check these guys out. – Richard Kingsmill (Triple J)
Greenthief are embarking on their third east coast tour of 2011 in support of their new film clip for Vultures.
Greenthief is a 3-piece alternative rock band hailing from Brisbane and only 3 years young, the band have not wasted any time spreading their word and music up and down the East coast of Australia crashing the indie scene with a unique blend of psychedelic rock. Through constantly playing live shows, the band has broken sound barriers and state lines while enchanting audiences with a sound akin to a lovechild of Jeff Buckley and Trent Reznor.
In early 2011, Greenthief went into world renowned Rockinghorse Studio (Byron Bay) and recorded their brand spanking new EP with aria winning British producer Steve James (Sex Pistols, The Jam). The EP was mastered by Tim Young of the Metropolis Mastering Group (Bjork, Placebo).
The new EP has already resulted in Greenthief being selected as the triple J unearthed featured artists with single Vultures being selected as a finalist in the Queensland Music Awards.
There is no slowing down for the band which sees them embarking on their third east coast of Australia for 2011 in support of their new film clip for single: Vultures.
