Thrills is the new project from local musician Michael Mullen, along with his Vacationer bandmates Kenny Vasoli and Greg Altman.  Inverting the tropical electro-pop of the latter outfit, Thrills tangles its roots with emo / punk vocals and guitar noodlings.  On the first single “Dominic” from the band’s debut LP Thrills of Constantly Collapsing, Mullen and co. create a Circa Survive-like atmosphere where thoughtful, distant lyrics hurtle through synth-laden time and space.  Stream the full LP here and check out the video for “Dominic” below.  Tickets and information for Thrills’ debut show at Boot & Saddle on March 8th with Flyermile (members of Circa Survive, Killer Bangs) and Younger Me can be found here.
