THE THRILL OF IT ALL is music. Original while familiar, futuristic yet classic, primal but complex, trashy and refined. Steady beats, big hooks, reverberating guitars, and pulsating fuzz-tones.
THE THRILL OF IT ALL is the stage and recording name of Oakland-based/ Austrianborn Felix Bergman. Influences include 70’s drive-in movie trailers, 30’s pulp art, Roxy Music, J-Dilla, My Bloody Valentine, The Cramps, Afrobeat, etc. THE THRILL OF IT ALL will be changing sounds for every release. The “glam/punk/r&b” of the first e.p., “Beware Jessica”, leads into the “african/surf/new wave” of the summer 2009 release, “So Explosive”.
For THE THRILL OF IT ALL’s latest live show Felix will be joined by a 4-piece r&b band. Raw, rhythmic, and non-stop. Definitely so explosive.
