New kid on the block Thief has released a killer debut track, ‘Broken Boy’, crafting an impressive minimalist sound. The track can be compared to the likes of Miike Snow and Metronomy, with sleek vocals, an old school drum beat and an addictive synth melody. The Sydney-sider otherwise known as PJ Wolf molds some smooth synth-pop rhythms, teaming up with producer Matt Redlich (Emma Louise, Hungry Kids of Hungary, Yes You) for his forthcoming EP Closer to create four tracks that twinkle with glittering synths and euphoric melodies.
With a number of awards under his belt, including winning the Triple J Unearthed Top Song Award and receiving the Foundation for Young Australians Buzz Grant, the yound producer is showing some real promise. We’re definitely keeping an eye on Thief.
