Although they’re sonically mellow, there’s a fire in Horse Thief’s bluesy, folksy rock that is powerful in the way it knocks you off your feet. The lyrics are intensely personal, often dealing with internal demons and emotions, both good and bad. “I sniff a little dust and I feel a lot higher/all my friends are born to bred liars,” is a central theme in “Little Dust,” a highlight from their latest album Fear in Bliss. Catching the attention of pop diva Lana Del Rey (she included Horse Thief’s video for “Devil” on her YouTube playlist) and labelmates the Flaming Lips (they covered Horse Thief’s “I Am the Bear”), the band’s celebrity fanbase is expanding as quickly as its music. With Deer Vibes, Pageantry.
