The Cheap Thrills – Rusty

Picture 81The youthful and energetic garage rock band, The Cheap Thrills, get ready to release their newest single, ‘Rusty’, on July 13th 2015

The new single is a hard pounding alternative rock tune that has intense energy and a bit of a psych/pop vibe.
‘Rusty’ starts off with the main guitar chord riff and then rips into some pounding bass and drums with the vocals and melody playing a call and response role. Once it gets to the chorus the guitars flourish in stereo creating great energy that builds and then comes back down to lead into the verse and then a break down.  ‘Rusty’ has an exciting live and garage rock sound that is familiar in its song form yet original in its own interpretation.
Picture 85The Cheap Thrills have great energy in their music and with their young age that carries into their live performance. Aged at just eighteen and nineteen, the band have already headlined 02 Academy shows, been selected as winners of the coveted Liverpool Sound City Youth Award 2012, and played the Calling Out stage of Kendal Calling. They also have played successful gigs in London, as well as supporting, The Rifles, The Moons, The Jezabels, Wave Machines, Skaters and Superfood.
Regulars on BBC Introducing Merseyside, the band have also been featured in The Guardian’s ‘Breaking Bands Column:
“Tumble of garage rock and nifty turn of phrase, they’re a blast live too.”, Marc Burrows, The Guardian.
