Denton Thrift share ‘Confessional’ on 2.3.18 via Majestic Records, the first track from their forthcoming EP ‘Sight’, released in the summer of 2018. ‘Confessional’ follows the release of two successful singles, ‘Sweetest Taboo’ and ‘Fear In the Night’ back in 2017.
The band quotes on the track: ‘Confessional is a song written from the perspective of someone struggling with mental illness while trying to keep a relationship together. Having the realisation that they might not ever recover from the illness, their only choice is to confess to their partner that they may not ever be capable of change, hoping that the truth will solidify them. In a bittersweetness they know their partner will not leave, however, they cannot reconcile with their decision to stay.’
Leeds based duo Denton Thrift combine rich vocal harmonies with deep layered synths and environmental percussion. Built upon a wonderfully sparse sound, Denton Thrift captivate with lacquered melodies atop a blanket of intricate synth chords.
Hailing from Northern Ireland and Devon the pair met while studying music at the University of Leeds. They first began song writing during their year abroad in Denton, Texas, later using this as inspiration for their name.
Soon after their first release Denton Thrift were quickly scouted by Majestic Casual Records in mid 2017 for the track ‘Fear in the Night (Feat. Mared)’ and later went on to sign their cover of Sade’s ‘Sweetest Taboo’.
