West Thebarton - Set It Straight

West Thebarton - Set It Straight
Straight outta the mean streets of Adelaide, West Thebarton have been teetering on the precipice of greatness for ages. In 2016, the band forged themselves into our consciousness with their self titled EP, support slots with the likes of Bad//Dreems, Cloud Nothings and King Gizz, plus appearances at BIGSOUND and Groovin’ The Moo.

Reluctant to take their foot off the gas, the band tore right into 2017 adding new drummer Caitlin Thomas to the fray, and releasing their deeply relatable single ‘Moving Out’. ‘Well-received’ might be a bit of an understatement as the track enjoyed a solid thrashing on national radio, well and truly catching the attention of industry bigwigs and new fans the nation over. An ensuing industry scuffle landed them a management deal with Fidelity Corp (Karnivool, Thelma Plum), and shortly after, self proclaimed super-fan James Tidswell of Violent Soho signed them to his new label, Domestic La La.

Backing things up with the release of equally-adored ‘Bible Camp’, Thebbies capped off their bumper year with a neat run alongside Polish Club, blistering sets at the Falls Festivals and The AU Review’s ‘Rock Artist of the Year’ Award. Phew!

About this track...

Set It Straight is arguably the easiest listen on the album, however this is juxtaposed with the emotionally charged lyrics from frontman Reverend Ray. "It's basically about two people are trying to make things work so
hard, but they just can't."
