New Music Review: Thursday’s New Single, A Real “Wail” Song

New Brunswick’s own Thursday dropped a brand new track on us by the name of “Magnets Caught In a Metal Heart.”  It’s the first song released from the band’s upcoming album, No Devolcion, due out April 12th, and is more than disappointing.

A lot of reviews, especially from fans on Facebook, are calling this song “beautiful.”  Here’s the deal…if I want to see something beautiful I’ll go to an art museum and stare at intricately constructed oil paintings of sunsets from afar, If I want to hear beauty I’ll throw on some Motzart, but if savage, Post-Hardcore, is what I desired, it was comforting to know I could always turn to my Garden State brethren, until now.

The instrumentals never quite get over the mountain to the raging promised land this collective of musical sentinels has guarded throughout its lengthy career, nor do Geoff Rickley’s vocals ever quite reach a level that could be considered “raging,” opting for more subdued verses and choruses full of emotional wailing.  This is not the intense, sonic dynamite of a band we’ve come to love over the years…but you can judge for yourself.
