About

Thirsty Curses is an eclectic rock'n'roll band based out of Raleigh, NC, which The Big Takeover called "an act too good to be this anonymous.". Thirsty Curses' music draws from numerous rock subgenres including grunge, alt-country, punk, garage rock, classic rock and power pop. Thirsty Curses' songs are both impassioned and sardonic; comical and foreboding, often dealing with heavy subjects but generally feature a humorous nudge and wink to the audience. As YES! Weekly wrote, "Thirsty Curses make rock’n’roll, with a boisterous beer-swilling edge to it. Many of these songs are about living it up while things fall apart at the seams, or at least trying to find some glory in chaos and meaninglessness." 

Ticko is a multifaceted musician whose journey through the realms of music has been as diverse as it is compelling. Since diving headfirst into the music scene in 2016, Ticko has consistently pushed boundaries, defying expectations and crafting a unique sonic signature that refuses to be pigeonholed. Originally rooted in the Folk/Americana genre, Ticko's early releases captivated audiences with their poignant storytelling and soul-stirring melodies. With three albums under her belt, Ticko has established herself as a formidable presence in the indie circuit, garnering praise for her introspective lyricism and emotive performances. Ticko prepares to unveil her fourth album in June 2024 which promises to be a departure from her previous work, marking a definitive transition into the realm of alt-rock. From the ethereal landscapes of Folk/Americana to the gritty, visceral energy of alt-rock, Ticko's music transcends genre labels, speaking directly to the heart of the listener with its raw authenticity and emotional depth.
