Thornhill will release their second album Heroine onJune 3 via UNFD. Pre-order it HERE.
The band, which just wrapped a successful U.S. tour with Dayseeker, has shared the video for “Raw.”
The new single from the Melbourne rock band peels back yet another layer of the upcoming sophomore effort, and it oozes with blistering charm and towering soundscapes.
Driven by odes to classic Hollywood and cinematic scores, Heroine expands upon sonic elements explored on Thornhill’s 2019 debut album The Dark Pool. “Raw” immersed the listener with sharp alternative and rock flavors, complete with razor-sharp riffs, snarling basslines, and pummeling beats.
Flitting between grit and billowing ambience, “Raw” also allows its overarching narrative to take the reins.
As vocalist Jacob Charlton explains, “The story of the song ‘Raw’ follows an actress’ responses to various requests, love letters, and desperate attempts made by fans and stalkers after her first major success, appearing in a soon-to-be cult classic film. This song primarily focuses on character of the voice rather than complex melodies and harmonies. So I really wanted to bring a story to life that matches the attitude of the instruments. The way that she fights back these attempts and turns them down requires a lot of bravery and strength and it was more of the angle I wanted to hit, rather than relying on angry, dark lyrical themes.”
“Raw” is yet another blast of flair and fire from Thornhill as they build towards the hotly anticipated release of Heroine.
