"Live review (Amplifier bar, Perth Jan 16th 2016)"

Like A Thief provided a decidedly suprisingly different set as main support. The three piece, hailing from Albany, hit the stage with more effects pedals than a shoegazer’s wet dream and launched into what can only be described as an infectious mix of rock and dance. Like a cross between Radiohead and a rave, their uplifting melodies and sheer craftsmanship, combined with some bouncing up and down sent a blissful wave out over the crowd. As the climax to their set they threw a whole bunch of glow sticks out for everyone to wave around as they turn Amps into a dance party for a brief while, and their songs and stage manner belong on a far larger stage and would be well suited to playing to a festival crowd. - Amnplify


Still working on that hot first release.



Electro dance rockers ‘Like A Thief’ bring their surprisingly fresh live sound to stages. With a solid debut EP under their belt and the powerfully appealing second EP titled ‘Play Loud’ hot off the press, 2016 is shaping up to be an epic launch pad for this high-energy outfit.

Like A Thief will carry you through several emotional states in a song with a genre bending mix of funk-rock, dance-pop and experimental electronica that will compel you to move and guarantee to leave you with a smile. Their incredible depth of sound from orchestral to explosive to driven to diverse is delightfully unique and yet at the same time comfortably familiar. Luscious bass sequences and rhythmic percussion accentuate the solid melodic concepts that flow from the synth and electric guitar. With no limb unused during a live performance the sheer craftsmanship of what they do captivates even the toughest of critics. You think you know what a three-piece band can do. You don’t.

‘Their sound can only be described as an infectious mix of rock and dance. Like a cross between Radiohead and a rave’ (amnplify magazine), with the combination of classic pop/rock, 70s funk and modern electronica all blended with smooth flowing melodies and synth lines that guarantee you’ll be humming for days to come.

The first single titled ‘Escape’ released at Amplifier/Capitol in Perth on Jan 16, has already landed with overwhelming support from fans and critics alike proving that the new sound from Like A Thief is charming audiences and producing fans.   

Since their conception in 2013 and having already landed support slots with bands such as: Switchfoot, Karnivool, British India and Tired Lion the future looks bright for this hardworking three piece. The boys from Albany continue to self manage and tour up and down the south west coast, playing some of the regions best venues. Persisting to carve out a positively appealing live show for themselves and winning new fans with every gig while proceeding to refine what they do both live and in the studio. With extensive plans on the horizon including film clips, a live album, a headline west coast tour, an east coast tour and a full length LP to name a few, the numbers are adding up causing many people to sense Like A Thief are undoubtedly one to watch.
