Dear black-clad, moping Organ fans out there, your favourite Smiths-stealing gang of Vancouver ladies are not back together, so continue feeling miserable about everything. The EP is a proper goodbye note, with new songs written just prior to their unexpected breakup in 2006 (and quietly recorded a year later). How nice they could stand to be in the same room together long enough to cut these songs, some of their strongest work.
Thieves is a farewell for the short-lived Vancouver band, the Organ. But the band flew under the radar of many in its brief existence, so this EP may also serve as an introduction for many. And it’s not a bad introduction. The band’s melancholy pop is infused with swaying mood, sounding somehow threadbare and textured at the same time.
