Born from the DIY/all-ages scene of New York with their live show typically spawning a mosh pit described by Stereogum as “more like an aggressive hug,” the Brooklyn-based trio bring an unchecked intimacy to every song while building deep and unshakable solidarity with the audience. THICK point out that connecting with other non-cis-het-male musicians has been one of the most rewarding aspects of starting out in the DIY scene. And in making their shows as inclusive as possible, “What’s incredible to see is how a lot of different people relate to our music,” says Page. The band partly aims to pass their own self-styled brand of positivity onto the crowd.
