Members of Melbourne's Greenthief, who are about to release 'Mirror Lies'

Melbourne’s Greenthief have been doing the rounds for quite some time now, delivering brilliant no-holds-barred psych rock at every turn. Now, just a year after we recorded their second record, the band have reconvened to deliver a new third album just as impressive as the last.

Weilding a psychedelic groove-rock sound influenced by the likes of Queens Of The Stone Age and Sonic Youth, Greenthief wouldn’t sound out of place on a bill next to King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – and they definitely share a similar work ethic when it comes to putting out some of the slickest and most unique rock in the country.

Their new record Mirror Lies carries on with the through-lines established on Tremors, but mastering by William Bowden (Gotye, Eskimo Joe, Children Collide) has helped them on their way to their most cohesive work yet, exemplified by the refined but still unpredictable ‘Hope’. 

“There was an emphasis on minimalising drum parts and keeping arrangements basic, aiming to inject a clearer danceable vibe into the tracks,” frontman Julian Schweitzer explains.

“At the end of the day, it’s important to us that Greenthief sounds like three people playing music together in a room, rather than a processed machine.”
