Oxygen Thieves ~ EP Launch »
Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter
OXYGEN THIEVES MAKE MUSIC THAT COULD ONLY BE MADE HIDDEN AWAY IN A SECLUDED ROOM IN AN OLD SPARK FLUGS FACTORY. THEY EMBRACE THEIR SURROUNDINGS FROM THE CITY TO THE HILLS CREATING SOUNDS FILLED WITH INTENSE, DARK UNCERTAINTY. FORMED BY BROTHERS, ALEX FEWTRELL AND ROB FEWTRELL, THEY TELL STORIES EXPOSING THE IDLE, FOOLHARDY AND IMMODEST.
OXYGEN THIEVES ARE ALEX FEWTRELL – RHYTHM GUITAR AND VOCALS, ROB FEWTRELL – LEAD GUITAR, SOUNDS AND VOCALS, DANIEL TILLING – DRUMS AND ALEX ROSE – BASS AND VOCALS.
PETER GUY (GET INTO THIS) – “slices of gnarly, white-hot knuckle-wrappers laid down in a frosty dungeon reimagining Incesticide-era Nirvana had they been locked away in Wirral instead of Aberdeen, Washington.’
NME RADAR – “Blessed with drawled vocals and pensive loud-quiet-loud brilliance”
BIDO LITO – “They possess a covalent bond – clearly demonstrated in their live gigs – that contributes enormously to them being well on their way to creating a successful formula”
THE DEVIL HAS THE BEST TUNA – “Oxygen Thieves are the best Liverpool band since Echo & The Bunnymen”
THE LOOKING GLASS – “‘We Found the Thieves’ goes to show that Northern rock is alive and kicking, just as grungy as you like, la. Just short of sixteen minutes long, I haven’t enjoyed a quarter of an hour so much in a long while.”
