COUNT THE THIEF, the progressive indie-rock outfit from Bangkok, is releasing new material for the first time since their Amends EP (2019). Since then, the band has been on temporary hiatus with their drummer stuck in the UK during the global pandemic, but they have discovered previously unreleased material that was recorded in Bangkok in 2016.
These tracks were intended as a follow-up to their award-winning first release – New Role (2015) – and were the first tracks they recorded as a then newly formed four-piece, but the songs never saw the light of day… until now.
Marvin, at Tide Studio in London, has rediscovered, re-mixed, and re-mastered these five tracks in the form of THE LOST ICARUS EP which is out now.
Alongside the release is a documentary following the recording process at Spring Fall Sea’s Ari Studio in Bangkok giving an insight into the meaning and thought behind the title track ICARUS and others.
COUNT THE THIEF’s epic journey began in 2013: originally a three-piece who’d swap instruments during shows, they soon rounded out their sound with a fourth member and cemented the line-up. Having toured throughout Thailand, Myanmar, Japan, Cambodia, and Vietnam, they hope to return to live music soon, bringing their sweeping, progressive indie/post-rock, underground sound to stages in the region once again.
