Her skin tastes like leather

Gigantism, or just a little closer to the camera?
Like so many other DIY artists, Los Angeles four-piece Thieves coat their catchy songs in prickly layers of fuzz and reverb. They aren’t quite so easily pigeonholed as many of their contemporaries, however, with other, more unusual influences appearing alongside the woozy guitar pop. Case in point: “Leather Jenny,” an unsettling tune that’s halfway between a crooning lounge ballad and a scary-ass tango. After three minutes of spiky slow-burn, it finally erupts into the fuzz pop catharsis you were waiting for.

These dudes have an album coming out some time this year. Based on this song, they’re off to a good start.
