Peeling back yet another layer of their impending sophomore album “Heroine” due out on June 3, the brand new single “Raw” from Melbourne rockers Thornhill 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“, with the group’s latest track “Raw” immersing into sharp alternative and rock flavours, complete with razor-sharp riffs, snarling basslines and pummeling beats.
Flitting between grit and billowing ambience, “Raw” also ultimately allows its overarching narrative to take the reins, as vocalist Jacob Charlton explains:
“The story of the song Raw follows an actress’s 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 their second studio album “Heroine”, out June 3.
“Heroine” can be pre-ordered HERE.
Thornhill will be out on tour in the US in July/August supporting Erra. Tickets are on sale at https://www.erraband.com/
