Bergen, Norway-based four-piece The Megaphonic Thrift (members of Casiokids,The Low Frequency In Stereo and Stereo 21) just released their first single “Candy Sin” off their debut album Decay Decoy. Decay Decoy will be out March 8 on Sonic Unyon. Listing their influences as Dinosaur Jr and My Blood Valentine (and having no qualms with showing big of an influence those bands were), Decay Decoy has a pretty literal meaning, as The Megaphonic Thrift lost all of their equipment to a fire the night before they were set to record.
The Megaphonic Thrift have a very short US tour lined up, revolved around SXSW – but look for more dates in the coming weeks. Have a listen to “Candy Sin” below.
