Peeling back yet another layer of their impending sophomore album ‘Heroine’ due out on June 3, the brand new single Raw from Melbourne rockers Thornhill oozes with blistering charm and towering soundscapes.

Driven by odes to classic Hollywood and cinematic scores, ‘Heroine’ expands upon sonic elements explored on Thornhill‘s 2019 debut album ‘The Dark Pool’, with the group’s latest track Raw immersing into sharp alternative and rock flavours, complete with razor-sharp riffs, snarling basslines and pummelling beats.

Flitting between grit and billowing ambience, Raw also ultimately allows its overarching narrative to take the reins, as vocalist Jacob Charlton explains: “The story of the song Raw follows an actress’s responses to various requests, love letters and desperate attempts made by fans and stalkers after her first major success, appearing in a soon to be cult classic film. This song primarily focuses on character of the voice rather than complex melodies and harmonies so I really wanted to bring a story to life that matches the attitude of the instruments. The way that she fights back these attempts and turns them down requires a lot of bravery and strength and it was more of the angle I wanted to hit, rather than relying on angry, dark lyrical themes.”

Raw is yet another blast of flair and fire from Thornhill as they build towards the hotly anticipated release of their second studio album ‘Heroine’, out June 3. And to celebrate the imminent unveiling, the band are also set to take to stages around Australia this July for their ‘Heroine’ Australian tour, with special guests Dayseeker from Southern California, Melbourne metallers Gravemind and Melbourne modern heavies Banks Arcade along for the ride.
