Teenage Thrills




If you haven't heard of Dublin's The Thrills until now, I implore you to listen to the tracks below and join the party of awesome. This is epic indie joy-pop. It makes you feel good, with its breaking, playfully wavering vocals and the interplay of banjo and piano at unexpected times. The voice reminds me a lot of someone who is escaping my brain at this instant but maybe you'll hear it too. Either way, you'll probably smile and feel a little thrill at this fun musical discovery we just made.

I love the thrills, i saw them last week in Manchester at the Night and Day, they played a load of new stuff of the album and it was amazing, I think the best new song was 'I came all this way' it might just be the best thing they've done to date!
Also he plays a mandolin not a banjo :)

"I came all this way" is a great track, the album is definitely full of them. And while I'm sure you're correct that he plays a mandolin, there is most certainly a banjo on the record. Ah those silly multi-instrumentalists!

Great discovery! I can't wait to have money to buy more records.
Check out the Lovemakers...their CD comes out about a week before this one and it's really fun..
