Thief ‘Crazy’ + National Tour
Thief had a stellar 2014, with the multi-instrumentalist swapping his guitars for synths in a move that’s garnering him legions of fans.
Last year’s Closer EP was met with critical acclaim for its shimmery synths and pop capabilities, which saw him reach 4.5 million hits on his SoundCloud page, and play the likes of CMJ and SXSW abroad.
Not on to slow down, Thief is starting 2015 where he left off – releasing a new stellar single and playing a national tour for his Australian fans.
‘Crazy’ is another pop gem. With huge hooks, crisp r’n’b vocals and infectious synths, ‘Crazy’ showcases the talent at the top of his game, ready to elect the adoration of festival circuit. Because when I listen to ‘Crazy’ i can’t help think it’d be the perfect festival song, with fans gathering in the late afternoon to sing and dance along to the singer’s latest hit.
Co- produced by M-Phazes, who’s responsible for working with Eminem and Kimbra, the track clearly has its eye on world domination. It’s the kind of cool, funk laden pop territory thats been marked by Mark Ronson and Pharrell.
And it looks to get a new contemporary in the work of Thief.
The musician is embarking on a national tour to mark the release of his new single. Supported by Purple Sneakers favourite Lanks, catch him before he blows up!
