THE THRILLS: Thrills for Learning!

Written by Melanie Silos
October 1, 2004

Bringing a bit of strings with a Motown sound to their San Francisco 70s feel, it's what's happeninging in The Thrills new song "Whatever Happened to Corey Heim" that just brings on a smile; it must be love! Now there's something thrilling to learn about.

A seeker of the truth of love as expressed in songs "Saturday Night" and "The Irish Keep Gate Crashing", singer/songwriter Conor Deasy, creates a path of music that feels like walking on sunshine. Something in Conor Deasy's untrained free-flowing songwriting makes his style so comepletely unique and refreshing as he expresses his thoughts without limitation to format and structure and yet the music lands with perfect rhythm, beat and melody. Conor is interested in learning more; he says, "I would like to learn Music Theory. I write from instinct and practicing. Part of me would like to write in a more formal manner as long as it doesn't over formalize the original process of songwriting."

With a strong foundation of creative freedom matched with formal training, knowledge of music theory would certainly strengthen one's artistic capacity with an affect to allow the choice of writing more formally and include new elements of style in making music. But be it formal or instinctive, Conor Deasy has the gift of talent and creativity with a love of music that puts the words into The Thrills.

After their first release in 2003 "So Much for the City" with great songs like "Big Sur" and "Santa Cruz", The Thrills are keeping it coming in 2004 with "South by Southwest - Live 2004" and their newest release this September, "Let's Bottle the Bohemia". On first hearing their music, one might think - Hey It's Moby Grape! Or maybe it's the Grateful Dead! But really it's that sound of mellow rock n' roll from THE THRILLS. So for all you music lovers with the thrills for Moby Grape, Grateful Dead, and Motown with a bit of an Irish new millennium rock n' roll twist, there's a new band of young Irish lads in the music world, and they're called The Thrills - all the way from Dublin sharing a sound that is so very California hippie. So "Let's Bottle Bohemia", and listen and learn more!
