APPLE ARTISTS – WEEK 10 – POLICE & THIEVES
POLICE & THIEVES
Sooo i was lurking around on Triple J Unearthed, and i wanted to check out this years current Unearthed High Contestants. I found this track “Lunacy Attracts”. Gave it a listen, enjoyed my time, and wanted more. Found these kids! Emailed them and here we are! WOW
Keep a huge eye on them. I love a good guitar, and i enjoy a band that creates these emotional feelings flow through my veins! … i sound so stupid, but cmon!

Police & Thieves – Life Is A Lottery
Formed at Rosebud Secondary College circa 2010, Police & Thieves are four old mates from the same primary school. Sharing a love of New York guitar bands like The Strokes and Television, combined with a taste for British slacker pop – the Libertines and the Kinks – the band have forged some exciting guitar-driven underground indie pop: ‘the new down-under’. What started out as a school project playing covers, has turned into a beast of it’s own. The band began writing and recording their own songs in 2011 and soon found them coming thick and fast. They had the dubious honour of getting kicked out of a local battle of the bands competition for having too many fans. OK – so many were 17 with fake I.D. but really ?? Once year 12 is wrapped up the boys plan on taking Police & Thieves to the masses.
Police & Thieves – Creature
I love those British inﬂuences coming through with your own unique conviction! Great sound and
singing along already!
Amelia Chappelow, triple j
I’ve listened to this four times in a row and it still feels fresh and engaging. Really like the bass which
brings an easy swagger to this song.
Caz Tran, triple j
You guys certainly reﬂect your inﬂuences but the song’s really well put together that you make it
your own. Very tight.
Dave Ruby Howe, triple j
