About

Thirsty Curses vocalist/guitarist Wilson Getchell is only half-joking when he describes the band’s songs as “existential crisis put to verse.” With an appealingly unpretentious stage presence juxtaposed by Thirsty Curses’ quick-witted lyrics and energetic, fast-paced, punk-laced rock ‘n’ roll, the band is just beginning to carve out a space for themselves in the industry.

The Raleigh, North Carolina-based band is Getchell, drummer Tradd Yancey, David James “Keebler” Henry on bass, and lead guitarist Kevin See. Among the group’s healthy repertoire are tracks like the fervent “Holy Moly” and “Neon Sign,” which exhibits more range and melodic cultivation. Thirsty Curses explores layers of rock, blues, Americana, punk, and permeating pianos, a microbrew of fine musicianship and brotherhood that slakes a deep craving for “meaning and purpose in our sterile, pre-packaged era,” Getchell says.

All told, Thirsty Curses’ music is both impassioned and sardonic; comical and foreboding, as the band uses humor and sarcasm to address complicated and personal subjects. Moreover, Thirsty Curses brings an exuberance to their performances, which elevates their live shows to something more akin to a raucous party. In short, Thirsty Curses is a whole lot of fun.
