I happened upon a televised live performance on MTV2 last night that has got me as musically excited as when I first heard Slanted & Enchanted over ten years ago. Considering so many bands are desperatly trawling through Seventies 'dirty' rock to find a niche, The Thrills have taken a subtle mix of Beach Boys, Burritos, Velvets, Young, Byrds... you get the idea, and stamped it with their own style and unique flavour and I for one find them a very exciting prospect. Whether they have the 'cool' credentials to become as big as The Strokes etc. we'll have to wait and see but for me it's enough that there's still such a high quality of music out there. Check them out, you won't be disappointed.
