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.” Thirsty Curses has a unique and distinct sound that blends across numerous rock subgenres. As Music Mecca noted in its write-up on Thirsty Curses’ newest single, “Nothing Really Matters”, “This head-banging anthem with two juxtaposed sonic halves explores the vastness of the Southern sound, while expanding on countless genres. Thirsty Curses continues to deliver impactful projects one after another, coming closer to cementing themselves as one of the more unique rock bands in Raleigh and beyond.”
