As if I needed another garage rock band cluttering my iTunes library! These Danish mod rock n’ rollers riffed their way into my horizon, and I haven’t been able to get them out of my head since. Appropriately titled Thee Attacks, this four-piece has been making a name for themselves playing retro-inspired rock across the world alongside legendary producer Liam Watson (the man behind the White Stripes’ Elephant fame).
With two albums already released to the masses, Rolling Stone has sang their praises, calling Thee Attacks their “new favorite Danish band” and saying “a band like them does not exist in the USA.” After examining their sound relativity I would have to agree; these dudes model themselves around Brit blues and garage rock from the 60s, a la The Who and the Kinks. Their catchy and aggressive pop aesthetic is comparable to their Scandinavian predecessors The Hives, but what really turns heads is their energetic, hand-clapping, finger-snapping scuzz that employs what I can imagine being a solid live performance.
Get down and dirty with these bluesy babes with “It’s Alright” from their 2010 debut album That’s Mr. Attack To You. Also don’t forget to peep their newest album titled Dirty Sheets out now via Crunchy Frog.
