Belfast group take another step forwards...

Belfast's own THVS are obsessed with the concept of 'heavy pop'.

Matching crunching riffs to pop-centric songwriting, the band's previous EPs have fully absorbed the influence of post-hardcore.

Essentially post-hardcore but definitely not post-melody, their new album 'Fevers' lands later this year.

Out on October 7th, it exemplifies their heavy pop vision, a bold, vibrant, powerful full length.

New single 'Palisades' is out this weekend, with the Belfast band set to play a launch show in their home city.

A taut, literate piece of music that is both chaotic and restrained, heavy but light-some, it underlines the dogged contradictions that make 'heavy pop' such a fascinating concept.

Tune in now.
