The Megaphonic Thrift is comprised of four Norwegians from Bergen, a rainy scenic city on the west coast of Norway.
The band released their debut album “Decay Decoy” in March 2011 on the UK label Club AC30. The album achieved universal acclaim and received very good reviews in multiple blogs and magazines. In March 2012 the band
released their second and self titled album. “The Megaphonic Thrift” received hugely positive reviews on multiple music blogs and influential publications, nationally and internationally.
The Megaphonic Thrift is also renowned for their energetic live shows. Pitchfork reviewed one of them: "... they set up a perfectly tuneful song, then carefully unravel it strand by melodic strand-- all in about four minutes. The result is a surge of scribbly, dissonant guitars, propelled by a percussive bass line and drumbeat that punishes the hi-hat and cymbals." The band has several European and North-American tours behind them, and has amongst other things performed at SXSW, CMJ, The Great Escape, PopKomm and Roskilde, as well as several support shows for Dinousaur Jr and A Place to Bury Strangers.
