as one of the most striking lyricists and voices of Australian contemporary song.
Her latest release – Black Across The
Field – has garnered extraordinary attention from the country's leading critics, being hailed as “diverse, profound, breath-taking” (Rhythms).
Black Across the Field combines Thorne’s spacious, gritty rock n roll with startlingly original dark-folk, with that signature warmth and expressiveness for which her live shows have become so renowned.
Like the best writers, Thorne uses her songs to distil the poetic from the everyday, and each new song opens onto an unlikely world of characters and emotions. From the dark childhood visions of Alice underpinned by swelling rock guitars, the hopeful girl-in-the-crowd dreaminess of When The Lights Go Down, through to the melodic pop defiance of The Basic Rules, Thorne’s songs are compelling in their intimacy. It’s this breadth and depth of writing that makes Black Across The Field feel a little like a favourite book.
