Noise rock from Brussels. Belgian band Thot are into heavy sounds, a rock assault that is augmented by visuals at their live concerts.
Band leader Grégoire Fray calls it "vegetal noise music" and he is right about that: the music grows on you. Their new EP Fig.1: The apple trees lover has two versions of Solid Insecure Flower. The original is in-your-face mayhem, while the remix kicks off with an oriental theme that shows up again for the backing vocals.
A noticeable French accent softens the blow, but both tracks will appeal to the alt.dance rock crowd.
Grégoire Fray: guitars, vocals, keyboards
