Formed in September 2013, Black Thorn have been categorised into many genres, but never only one. On their journey to finding the "new sound" they took too much, had a few too many and ended up somewhere around whatever they are now. Like a 21st century list of genders, their musical fluidity knows no bounds. Through combining heavy folk instrumentation with elements of rock, funk, pop-punk, blues and dance, they have crafted a unique recipe for original music. Giving no time for break-up songs or long lost love, their light topic lyrics are a musical diary for present time life. After performing on the BBC Introducing stage at Latitude, their wake up call wasn't to stop but rather to grow. They now come fully loaded with full drum kit and keyboards to every party. Ready for anything, they are back from a hiatus with new music and an in-your-face attitude.
