About Summer Thieves:
In our land, ‘summer’ means so much more than the warmest months of the year. When we smell summer coming, we think of freedom and happiness. Claiming the ability to steal this feeling and package it up into one band comes with incredibly high expectations. Expectations that New Zealand’s Summer Thieves can own.
Summer Thieves play WITH their audience, their people; their tribe. The crowd becomes as much a part of the gig as the song. Moving the crowd & getting the crowd moving are two different things; Summer Thieves does both well.
When you describe their music, you could say, reggae, rock, funk, or you could forget the genre and focus on explaining the feeling Summer Thieves songs promote, because it’s just the same as summer – freedom, happiness, one long infectious party.
Summer Thieves are: Johnny Ward (Drums and Percussion), Adam Spencer (Bass), Angus Cleland (Keys, Percussion and Sampling) and Jake Barton (Guitar and Vocals).
Track listing: Summer Thieves; Possibilities; Love The Funk; George Street; Can’t Escape It (Bonus).
