The Thing supported by Ocean Ivy

The Thing supported by Ocean Ivy

The Thing is a four piece from New York City.

The band originated in High School when Michael Carter, Jack Bradley, and Zane Acord bonded over a shared love for rock & roll. Over the years they honed their craft, self recording and writing songs influenced by 60’s pioneers such as the Kinks, Grand Funk Railroad, and artists of The Nuggets Compilation. As they progressed in skill and knowledge the band started to envision a career inspired by the likes of Brian Jonestown Massacre, King Gizzard, and The Black Keys.

The Thing started playing shows and creating a buzz around New York City in the Winter of 2022. Shortly after, the band embarked on small tours up and down the east coast. Their energetic live performances earned the attention of honest music lovers.

Ocean Ivy exists to build an ethereal dreamscape to counterbalance the harsh concrete brutality of Birmingham that surrounds them. Incorporating the explosive beats of buddy rich, the wisdom and words of Jack Kerouac, and the harmonic guitar lines of Big Thief, the Birmingham-based 5-piece are embarking on a journey to spread their word around the world.
