Oozing with sultry melodics and sweltering riffs, the brand new single Obsession from Melbourne rockers Thornhill, out today via UNFD, is a sharpened delight,.

Welding the rugged sensuality of Deftones together with Thornhill‘s trademark beaming charisma, Obsession transcends into decadent waters, with vocalist Jacob Charlton unleashing on narcissistic desires against a primal sonic backdrop.

“Obsession focuses on a narcissistic inner monologue, insistent on having what they want,” the band shares of their latest release. “Oozing lies and pleas at the distress of an old lover, they project their desires at the cost of their own “life”.”

Eternal purveyoys of artful and engaging heavy creations, Thornhill have always possessed a flair for nuanced rock beyond their influences. Via their ARIA Award-nominated 2022 album HeroineThornhill solidified an undeniable reputation as one of the most innovative and immersive heavy acts in the Australian scene. Debuting at #3 on the ARIA Album chart, Heroine also debuted at #1 on the Australian Album chart, and has since had more than 8.5 million streams to date.

Ticking off a huge year in 2023, including a mammoth North American run supporting The Plot In You, touring Europe alongside Holding Absence and a performance in the UK for Radar Fest alongside Sleep TokenMonuments and many more, Thornhill have also amassed a heaving array of accolades over the years, including triple j’s Feature Album and additions to countless Best Of The Year listings for their 2019 release The Dark Pool, with the 2019 full length now in command of over 50 million streams.

Armed with new music in 2024, Thornhill kicked off the year supporting Silent Planet on extensive North American run, and will join fellow Aussie heavies Polaris on tour in the UK and Europe starting next month. And fans can catch even more Thornhill action this week, with the group’s 2017 single Limbo officially featuring on the latest episode of the American ABC police procedural drama The Rookie, airing this week in the US.
