Band Spotlight #4: The Thrill of it All

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.
