Horse Thief-Fear In Bliss

Oklahoma based quintet have released their stunning debut album, Fear In Bliss, courtesy of the Bella Union label.   This fantastic record is full of uplifting anthems as well as fusing genres like psychedelia and folk together to make for something really special. 
Opening track I Don’t Mind really sets the scene for a mesmerising album with its understated tones that are superbly driven along by some resounding beats.  The excellent Holding On shows more of the folky side of Horse Thief and shows how the band can easily vary the pace of their songs.  Let Gohas a wonderful intro before developing into a tune that really wants to make you move your feet as well as being a particular stand out moment of the album.  Fear In Bliss is drawn to a conclusion by the blissful Warm Regards, summing a up a really high quality record.
