Based out of Southern California, Thrift is characterized by noisy garage rock tones mixed with pulsating rhythms and powerhouse vocals. The band aims to captivate audiences and listeners with their easily distinguishable sound. Anna Carmela (bass and vocals) refers to their style as «dirty disco,» or, in other words, garage rock-meets-pop. Thrift seeks to grip audiences and listeners alike with the in-your-face production style, lead vocal intensity, wailing bass and guitar hooks, and fierce live performances.
Blue Midnight (Justine Glaser) is a singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and fashion designer from Los Angeles, CA. She began performing music at the age of 8. She knew from a young age that she would deviate from the typical path taken by her family of doctors and lawyers in order to purse her passion for the arts. Her powerful music is a blend of alternative rock, symphonic metal, and grunge. Her influences include Nirvana, Bjork, Evanescence, Muse, The Cure, Kate Bush, Linkin Park, Led Zeppelin, Mozart, and Alanis Morissette.
Blue Midnight has the rare gift of synesthesia, the ability to blend sound and colors in her mind, resulting in her vivid musical imagination. She is lead vocalist and also plays piano, guitar, and harp. She plays acoustic shows solo as well as concerts with her full band, which includes noted musicians in the Los Angeles metal scene.
She is in the process of recording her debut album, Eternal Wish, with producer/composer and cousin, Sam Glaser. The album is slated to be released his summer.
