Thighs - Self Titled

'Self Titled'

Review by Elek Malcolm-Madill

Genre/s: Noise Punk
For Fans Of: Soupcans, Bird Blobs, Koro, Drunkdriver, Witchface
Favourite Track:  Russ

Toronto has been building up a bit of a reputation in recent years as a hotspot for noise-punk of varying extremities. On the far spectrum of things you've got raw punk oriented Absolut, and other bands such as the Soupcans as well. Thighs are not as hard and heavy as Abosult but are more easily to a split between the Soupcans, Witchface, and the Strokes into some strange hybrid. Based around quick, frantic riffs, drumming, and Masonna-esque vocals, Thighs is an earlier example from the greatness of Toronto's noise punk scene steeping in an aura of alienation and anxiety, Thighs' music is a clangy, dysfunctional trek through classically inspired punk tracks.
