Those with a keen eye and ear may recognize frontman Jon-Lee Martin from Brew Record’s very own masked masters of noise Kong who released their one and only album ‘Snake Magnet’ in 2009. With two-thirds of Brew now working under the Hatch Records banner alongside some new blood there were always going to be some links to the previous label.
Originally starting life as a home studio project and after some encouragement from close friend Jorma Vik from The Bronx, a series of lo-fi recordings appeared online which, showed the bare bones of Then Thickens. Now years later and with a full band behind him, which includes former Rolo Tomassi member Joseph Thorpe on bass, Then Thickens are now ready to take things further with their full sound of lo-fi pop meets American rock.
Then Thickens have previously supported the likes of Mariachi El Bronx and Biffy Clyro.
