Thick Show Broke Pop Punk Boundaries
"The show was a whirlwind of different kinds of pop punk and new levels or moshing.”
"The themes, the sounds, the heart and passion all add up to one of the most exhilarating and just plain fun punk albums to be released in a long while. Rebellion, moxie, artistic merit, and passion are just a few of the main spiritual themes of punk, and it’s hard to think of a band that currently has more of that in them than THICK."
Late Night Dispatches From SXSW
"...ended up seeing this trio of young women from Brooklyn, and it is the perfect name for their music. It is this loud, gritty grungey, gnarled rock [...] It was just a holy crap moment for me."
Band To Watch: THICK
"Chatting with Nikki Sisti, Shari Page, and Kate Black of THICK feels like being at a slumber party. They laugh and talk over each other, rehashing stories of drunken memories and past relationships around an assortment of chips and beer. Mismatched clothes are strewn about Black’s bedroom for a makeshift photoshoot. “Would you rather be a really awesome live band that not many people know or a really shitty recording band that everyone knows?” Sisti asks the room. “Definitely a better live band,” Black responds immediately. Page agrees. Nodding, Sisti continues, “OK, would you rather be a croissant or a dolphin?”..."
Consequence of Sound
The 10 Most Anticipated Punk Albums of 2018
Brooklyn power-punk trio Thick may release a full-length album in 2018, or they may just keep pumping out a steady stream of singles and EPs along the lines of 2016’s It’s Always Something…. We’d honestly be happy with either outcome, so long as we get a few more swigs of a strange brew that blends late-’90s pop punk with sloppy garage riffs and a dash of millennial ennui. The group’s lyrics often read like an exhausted account of life as a young person in New York City (“I got that apartment in Bushwick/ And now I’m bored”), but they take on new meaning when plastered against a wall of sound and sung in harmony. We’re in this together becomes the dominant sentiment, each song tugging at your shirt with a reminder that there’s always someone to bang heads and drink beers with in a world gone absolutely fucking mad. –Collin Brennan

The New York Times was kind enough to include us in the Sunday edition alongside and article titled "Rock's Not Dead, It's Ruled by Women."
They also ran an interactive version of the article online featuring 25 bands proving their thesis. We are excited and honored to share the same pages as some of our women rock heroes.
