Themes Post Live Songs, Fall Preview of Upcoming Material
If there were ever a time to check out musical offerings from one of Minneapolis' most promising new bands, it would be now. Themes, who, sadly, are moving out to the East Coast come this fall, have posted live versions of previous material, including a new rendition of the majestic "Epic World", over on their MySpace Page. Songs include the aforementioned "World", the rocking, rollicking "Know Navigation", and the haunting, spare "Soldier Trade".
In addition to the live documents, taken from their August 22nd show at the 7th Street Entry*, the band has also posted some samples from an upcoming EP that will be recorded on Halloween at Snowghost Music. Before that time, the group will be part of the Annuals/Minus The Bear tour that will take them to venues all across the nation
So there will be more than ample opportunity to see Themes live, and to perhaps hear the new material. Judging from the snippets posted, the EP will have a more definitive rock feel, while still retaining the folk characteristics of their earlier work; dual harmonies reminescent of Low don't hurt these tracks either.
Listen to the new stuff here.
Full Disclosure: Themes played with One For The Team, and We All Have Hooks For Hands, two bands that one of our writers has a financial interest in.
