THUS LOVE – ” In Tandem “

Posted: August 7, 2022 in MUSIC

Echo Mars (she/her), Lu Racine (he/they), and Nathaniel van Osdol (they/them) formed Thus Love in 2018, but due to many pandemic-ridden setbacks, it’s likely this might be the first you’ve heard of the Brattleboro post-punk band. As three self-identifying trans artists seeking connection through communal creativity, it was music that offered them the freedom to express their shared lived experience. Signed to Captured Tracks in the spring of 2022, the band’s debut album “Memorial” arrives this October.

Although unmistakable is a nod to classic 80s cuts, “Memorial” is an infectious mix of experimental musicianship, powered by Thus Love’s unique sonic identity. The single “In Tandem” is an instant, charged post-punk hit, ear-pleasingly rhythmical and defiant in its character – at once music we want to hit repeat on. The architects of their own unbreakable bond, songs on the album explore dark, ugly and vulnerable themes, stories are told with profound honesty, all framed with hope and a will that love, ultimately, conquers.
