Thot: Fig.1: The apple trees lover

Live @ Boutik Rock, Brussels 2009 - photo: Fred

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.

Live band:
Grégoire Fray: guitars, vocals, keyboards
Gil de Chevigné: drums, electronics
Barto La Punzina: bass
Hugo Peeters: piano, keyboards
Arielle Moens: live visuals

The Fig.1: The apple trees lover EP is available as a free download in various formats from thot.bandcamp.com.

Live dates:
  • 04/02 La Louvière, La Taverne du Théatre, Belgium
  • 04/24 Kortrijk, Boscorock Festival, Belgium
