Thieving Irons

Thieving Irons features former Pela guitarist Nate Martinez alongside musicians Dan Brantigan, Josh Kaufman and Andy Nauss. Together the Brooklyn four-piece play charming folk-pop whose tone is somber yet warm, and whose texture is rustic yet robust. The beautiful full-bodied orchestration — including wincing banjos, charging pianos, and heralding trumpets — gives their songs a lush, layered sound. Combine that with Martinez’s distinct pained vocals, and the result is music that’s thick with emotion and brawn.

This Midnight Hum is the debut album by Thieving Irons.
