Thieves Like Us debut 12″ out next Tuesday (03.10)


Thieves Like Us is a musical vehicle — an elegant starship, pointed straight to the heart of the listener. They align themselves musically with Europe, & consider Paris their home (although none of them are French).

Pontus Berghe (drums) & Bjorn Berglund (keyboards) are from Sweden. Andy Grier (vocals) is from the United States. They met at a picnic in Berlin.

People often ask them to describe their sound, and although they encompass a variety of influences, they ultimately consider themselves to be a POP BAND. Yes, the production style is both disco & hip-hop, but the sheer strength of the melodies and emotional depth of the songs makes them classics.

Their debut album Play Music was written, recorded & mixed in the cities of New York, Berlin, Vienna, London, Rio De Janeiro & Stockholm. They claim the album is mostly about love gone wrong (Drugs In My Body, Lady) & identity problems(Program of The First Part, Headlong Into Night).

But no matter how you interpret Thieves Like Us if you have a pulse, you’ll know their songs by heart already.

You are able to get this beauty on a 12″ on this SITE (ships on 03.10) & the American version of the CD comes out on April 7th.
