MP3: Thieves, “Swan Song”

Homegrown Buzz favorites Thieves recently sent us this track from their new Divider EP to share in hopes of promoting their CD-release party.

Unfortunately, that party took place last weekend (with Cowboy Indian Bear and Sailor Sequence, so you know it had to’ve been good). Hey, we get backed up here sometimes at the Wayward Blog.

But it’s never too late for a dope jam, and that’s just what “Swan Song” is. The live/digital drum combo and minor-key atmospherics and strangled vocals on the bridge are out of the Radiohead playbook, while the big, gothic-cathedral production evokes Britpop balladeers like South and Stereophics.

Take it away, Thieves. And please, book another show soon. We’ll be there. Probably.
