Thrushes
Thrushes
Thrushes; part of the passerine bird family. The songs of some species are considered to be among the most beautiful in the avian world.

Baltimore's Thrushes bring a similar beauty to the human world with Exposing Seas, their first full length in 5 years.

Formed in 2005, the band's previous efforts (2007's Sun Come Undone and 2010's Night Falls) garnered the kind of glowing praise most indie acts could only hope for. Now, with Seas and its swirling, reverb-drenched guitars and dreamy, yet plaintively delivered vocals, the album brings to mind a mix of the classic shoegaze era-gone-by, Hounds of Love Bush-isms and a splash of 90's emo-progenitors Rainer Maria resulting in Thrushes most focused work to date.

On the band's approach to this new album, singer Anna says "Exposing Seas is an album that shows our growth as a band. We worked so hard over the past few years to create songs that were larger and louder than before without losing the ethereal mood (of the band's previous work)." Lyrically, she says "a lot of the songs have a dark feel, or a hint of longing. I guess that's just where I end up when i write even if the words aren't autobiographical." 

Recorded and produced by J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines, Office of Future Plans) at Magpie Cage Studios (Baltimore, MD), Exposing Seas is now available on Florida's New Granada Records.
