The Soldier Thread is a brilliant indie-pop quintet hailing from Austin, Texas and influenced by the likes of Coldplay, Sigur Ros, Radiohead, Eisley, The Killers, Death Cab For Cutie, U2, Pink Floyd and The Beatles.
They came to my attention as they opened for Blue October on their last acoustic tour. In addiction, lead vocalist Patricia Lynn sang a duet with Justin Furstenfeld on the new BO song "The Follow Through": watch the performance here.
The Soldier Thread released the very solid and interesting album "In Spades" last year: produced by Dwight Baker, the record marked a shift from a true indie sound to a more polished, pop-driven tune, as you may certify listening to the texans' songs on their facebook page.
TST have some great new music out: you can download the single "Matador" (video on the left) and the just released "Anybody" for free at their facebook page. Enjoy.
