AUDIO: Thriftones – “Lovin’ Man/Addict’s Lament”
Psychedelic-Americana rockers Thriftones dropped a two-piece to close the year. The first song “Lovin’ Man” is a jangly tune about fancying someone and wondering who’d be their lover if not you; the second song “Addict’s Lament” is self-explanatory and touches on the vicious cycle of coming down and getting high. With a melancholy atmosphere cloaking vocalist Matt Davies, “Addict’s Lament” captivates the loneliness of an addict’s dependent lifestyle, where things once held close begin disappearing left and right. Thriftones deliver tales of love and pain; we hope it’s the sign of something bigger to come in 2022.
