Thrillhouse are back with the first single, “So Far From Where I Started From” off their highly anticipated debut album “Something About This Place” This introspective and personal song explores the feelings of growing up, nostalgia, and searching for one’s place in the world.
The lyrics are raw and sincere, yet the song is filled with a contagious, uplifting energy that will leave listeners feeling good. The song draws familiar influences from artists like The War on Drugs, The National, Kurt Vile, and Fleetwood Mac, with those influences being not only evident but very welcoming and good-felt, like when great music inspires other great music. All these influences also make this reminiscent of timeless, feel-good rock.
The debut album, “Something About This Place” is a collection of stories about growing up in the charming but often overlooked seaside town of Bognor Regis. According to the singer Sam Strawberry, “It’s not the sexiest subject for an album, but it is what it is. The Bog [Bognor Regis] is always the butt of the joke, but there’s an odd charm to the place. Hopefully, my little stories capture a bit of that.” The chorus is explosive and catchy, making it the perfect start to Thrillhouse’s long-awaited album. Get ready to experience the chilled and feel-good rock vibes of Thrillhouse!
