WE'RE KISS THE THIEF
SHROPSHIRE'S ANSWER TO ALT/INDIE ROCK
"Kiss the Thief are a chill indie rock band from Shrewsbury, UK. Their style is entertaining, with a little bit of blues and a bunch of swagger. Here are two of their songs as they are a truly emerging young band...."
"....All told the band has a sound that is familiar enough to feel right, but is fresh enough to keep you wondering where it will shift next. The musicianship is top class and the songs really work. I’m looking forward to hearing more from these guys."
Tell us a bit about yourself?
We are Kiss The Thief, a four piece alt/indie band from Shropshire,
There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest?
We like to see our tracks through from start to finish, and like to do all the work in between too - from writing to mixing. Also we have one of the tallest guitar players in the world.
What’s your back-story?
We met at college and have been writing and performing since, trying to create a new and unique sound that combines jazz, alt and rock flavours. Were not afraid to dabble in different genres and we take pride in writing lyrics that make you want to think.
