THREAD PULLS Thread Pulls are part rock band, stripped back to a core of drums and bass. Skewed grooves anchor their hypnotic proto-disco sound – kick-drum centred and sub-bass heavy. Roughly cut vocal layers and eastern trumpet-echoes coupling solar-synth-drones bring to mind early elements of future sounds. Having acquired a considerable reputation for their raw, energetic live shows and limited EP releases, they released their debut album New Thoughts to critical acclaim at home and abroad on Irish independent label OSAKA recordings at the end of 2010, followed by extensive touring in Ireland, UK, Europe and Scandinavia.
With echoes of Sheffield’s most prolific sound processers Cabaret Voltaire and the complex polyrhythms and repetitive dance styles of New York’s ESG, New Thoughts gestated and grew from extensive live shows often in galleries and warehouses in Dublin. http://www.threadpulls.com
