"Outrageously talented guitar work, subdued bass lines"

"Thee Now Sound brings to mind simplistic rock and roll at its finest. Based out of Ohio, USA this trio lays an organic style of country fueled punk rock. "Lettuce, Turnip And Pea" is not overproduced to achieve their cagey solid sound; the band achieves this on their own with outrageously talented guitar work, subdued bass lines and simple, yet very effective, drum beats." - MG, Hussieskunk


"Intense band that offers a strikingly straight jab of stripped down rock and roll that will delight any fan of good music"

"With each and every track, Thee Now Sound solidifies their place in the growing trend of garage rock outfits, that we're all familiar with. However, Thee Now Sound brings something different to the table, not necessarily a new paradigm of music, but more along a mix of styles that isn't found in the garage-punk laced rock that is in circulation these days. While the album didn't contain any liner notes or even a lyric sheet, from what I have heard, lyrically Thee Now Sound is extremely personal on most songs. The band offers intimate looks into their softer side with tracks like "Lament," while crushing you down with the fury of "Shallow". All in all, Thee Now Sound is an intense band that offers a strikingly straight jab of stripped down rock and roll that will delight any fan of good music."
- MG, Hussieskunk


"Ear-shattering blast of raucous punk rock is a punishing assault on the senses"

"Occasionally bands and record labels fit seamlessly into a ready-made partnership; such is the case with Thee Now Sound. Based in Ohio, the trio’s ear-shattering blast of raucous punk rock is a punishing assault on the senses, which is why it seems rather appropriate when you discover that the band is signed to Tinnitus Music. Comprised of snotty vocals, distorted guitar lines and intense beats, Seize Thee Sound is a pulsating statement of intent from a band that plays on their torn, emotional boundaries. "

"Turn up the volume and jam it out"

"Playing the "Seize Thee Sound" EP, there's a very punk/pre-grunge sound to it. I regret listening to it while the wife was sleeping, because I really wanted to turn up the volume and jam it out. The song "Stooge" is obviously a ode to Iggy Pop, where you can hear the elements of "I Wanna Be Your Dog" in the bass line. The screaming is in your face, and the quality is very raw. Perfect for the genre. Who likes polished punk rock? Those bubblegum-chewing kiddies at the mall! "Bar Bend Blues" starts out with a high dosage of feedback from the guitar, bringing to mind sorrowful memories of Kurt Cobain's contributions to music. However, the rest of the song is more rambunctious and not very Nirvana-ish. It leans more Rancid, and has nothing bluesy about it. It's like Flogging Molly with balls. "Psy" has more of a groovy, jam band feel about it. It kinda lingers there, feeling improvised. But fun. Listen: What's he going to say next? "

"There's nothing like Thee Now Sound"

"The song, "3 to 1" has a lot of chunks and splashes. The vocals actually remind me of the delivery (not the sound!) of Danzig's - think: "Snakes of Christ." And they add that long-forgotten feedback squeal at the end of the track. "Day After Execution" is a straight-up nod to early 80's punk rock. There are plenty of bends in the guitar solo, seemingly on the 3rd and 4th strings, instead of the usual high strings. This second EP rounds off with the track, "Nailed," a more thrash-punk sound. The melodies of the verses are so familiar, but I cannot place them. Not a rip-off, but definitely influenced by a song that's on the tip of my (and probably your) tongue. Over all, all six songs are wonderful for old school punk. They're raw, slushy, fast and fun. And there's nothing like Thee Now Sound in Columbus, as far as I know. "

Bio

Be prepared. Close your eyes and listen. Now open them and tell us how many musicians you see.

Two-member rock bands are relatively rare, because of the difficulty in providing all of the musical elements of a trio or quartet. Two-member rock bands typically omit one of these musical elements, and then there is Thee Now Sound.

Unlike the early 2000s, blues-influenced rock bands such as The White Stripes and The Black Keys, Thee Now Sound provide all of the components of a four-member band with half of the head count. In other words, Thee Now Sound is loud and bring the noise.

Based in Ohio, the duo’s ear-shattering blast of raucous rock is a punishing assault on the senses, taking any crowd on a break neck speed ride and leaving them wanting more.
