"Expect pastoral passages to evoke the solace you find in nature and epic surges to denote existential wonderment undercut by dread."
"It's this transatlantic smorgasbord of elements from across the alternative rock spectrum that makes this debut a success"
“Horse Thief’s songs are edgy, emotionally compelling, and they've earned the band a cadre of their own fanatical fans across the country”
“If bands like Fleet Foxes and Blitzen Trapper write tunes that qualify as pastoral, then Horse Thief’s are best described as primal, full of lurking beasts and dark forests, as literal as they are metaphoric.”
“Tracks such as Colors and I Am The Bear envelop you to the point where you can almost smell the sap of the pine and hear twigs snapping beneath your feet as you dance throughout the majestic dreamscape that Horse Thief has created for you.”
“Horse Thief sounds like the beginning of a road trip across the Midwest. The music is wide-open and spacious, and the energy bubbles just below the surface.”
“The reedy thin echoes of high altitude can be found in their music, but the lyrics reflect life on the plains. This is mountain music brought to sea level for stargazers and those searching for Old America.”
