New Music Find: The Candle Thieves

by Kelly

Things have been rather quiet at Dogtown Blogs lately – a direct result of the fact that things have been rather busy in the non-virtual world.  I’ve been trying to time my new music posts with #musicmonday on twitter but that didn’t work out this week.  Oh well, moving on…

So this week’s find is The Candle Thieves.  I first heard of them through an article in the British paper The Guardian.  They run a series called “First Sight” that hilights new artists and I’ve found a couple of good additions to my playlist through them.  Their sound is described as “a guilty pleasure for deep thinkers” on their MySpace site (where you can currently get a free download of their song “Pull Back The Moon“.

The music video for their “The Sunshine Song” was nominated for Best Mixed Media Video at the 2009 UK Music Video Awards and I can see why – I think it’s such a great video.

Here’s a live version of their song “We’re All Gonna Die (Have Fun!)”.

And this is the boys playing live on the Staten Island Ferry:
