Instrument Thieves, TKTTSM

Instrument Thieves

Instrument Thieves are a newly conceived avant-pop band from a Brit, a Singapore native, and two music school grads from New Jersey. They found one another in Brooklyn and have been holed up in their Flatbush studio for a year figuring out what type of sounds they wanted to make. Drums, bass and guitar lay down the beats while throwback analog synth and electronically tinged violin add the color. A subtle weirdness compliments the strength of the melody and lyrics, which allude to some sort of darkly fixated Paul Simon.

Multi-instrumentalist/producer Owen O'Mahony & singer/songwriter
Johanna Stahley's psych-rock/candy-pop self titled debut album
"TKTTSM" has busted out of it's recorded form into a high energy,
mesmerizing live show. Gymnastic instrumentation, Bjork-like vocals
and Crosby, Stills and Nash harmonies explode from this six-piece band
with precision and emotion. With Jacob Colin Cohen on drums, Matt
Cusack on bass, Reinder Oldenburger on guitar and Lauren Zettler on
synths, TKTTSM is fighting for something worth fighting for. In a
review for Nanobot, Clay says "It is the funnest anti-establishment
music I have ever put in my ears."

TKTTSM released their debut album on October 16, 2012 to stellar
reviews. In short order, the first single "Plastic Fantastic" was
added to 142 college radio stations. Moheak Radio in L.A. added
"Plastic Fantastic" to regular rotation in March 2013 and Music
Supervisor Gary Calamar (True Blood, Dexter, 1600 Penn, Longmire)
named TKTTSM in a January 2013 Entertainment Weekly article entitled
"The Best Songs On TV This Season".
