With a name like Thunder Power you might expect a heavy metal outfit putting the fear of the Nordics Gods into a quivering audience. Not so. This band from Omaha, Nebraska, peddle pop music with a rough edge. They have a five track EP called Love Yourself that is quite pleasing for your ears. They name The Smiths, Jello Biafra, Otis Redding, Johnny Cash and Sonic Youth among their musical heroes.
With a lo-fi attitude and a vintage keyboard sound - they even use the much maligned Melodica of yesteryear - the songs of Thunder Power are like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day.
