THICK Share Video for New Song ‘Father’

    Brooklyn punk band THICK have dropped a new single called ‘Father’. The track, which came together after the passing of singer/bassist Kate Black’s dad, arrives with a video directed by Sydney Tate Bradford. Check it out below.

    “THICK has always been a cathartic outlet for frustration and anger, but ‘Father’ is the first time I tapped into sadness and loss without a snarky comeback,” Black said in a statement. “This song is a snapshot in my journey with grief after losing my dad, at a point when it was still a surprise every time I wanted to ask him a question and remembered that he wasn’t there.

    “It’s scary sharing something so personal and vulnerable, I could barely get through recording the first voice note that I sent to Nikki of the song, you could hear the tears rolling down my cheeks,” Black continued. “It can be tough playing it live, my whole body tightens up against my emotions. But, it’s been rewarding having people share their experiences and relate to the song, it’s a nice reminder that you’re never really alone. ”

    Of the video, the band added: “Experiences with grief are so personal, for the ‘Father’ music video, we invited people to share what grief and loss feel like to them and to express it in whatever way they feel most comfortable – through movement, music, screaming, etc. We were blown away by the participants and are so grateful that they were willing to share themselves and be so raw with us.”

    THICK’s sophomore album, Happy Now, came out in 2022. Last year, they put out the one-off single ‘Doomer’. Read our Artist Spotlight interview with THICK.
