Get EXTRA ORDINARY on iTunes
THIEVE loves collecting influences and taking little bits from different sounds – that’s where their name comes from. This album was years in the making. The different sounds and themes on Extra Ordinary represent the different stages in THIEVE’S growth individually and as a unit up to this point. The sound of the album can best be described as “an eclectic representation of a wide variety of influences.” They also call it Gutter Pop.

1. Wild Western Cape
