“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes"
With these words Shakespeare could very well be describing the sound of The Thinking Men. It is a dark devilish affair, a deliciously instinctive seduction walking the rim of nightmares while channelling inspirations from the likes of Tom Waits, Nick Cave, The Doors and Jack White into something boldly individual.
The band bring the same depth of theatre and intensity that constitutes their memorable and dramatic stage proposition into their song writing, weaving rich tales and emotions around addictive hooks and groove threaded melodies. This can all be evidenced within the band’s latest EP, ‘Memento Mori’, a tapestry of dark adventures never going where you expect and taking the listener to shadowy corners that they may not wish to peer into. In addition, one not need search far to find a touch of mischief and a whiff of irresistible madness within the confines of the record.
With new drummer Rob Goodwin in their ranks, with an even greater hunger to turn audiences into a frenzied mass, with their indelible foot stomping anthems.
