Horse Thief is a psychedelic folk-rock band that was originally formed in Denton, TX, but moved to Oklahoma City to attend the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma. Although initially signed with the Flaming Lips’ management, the band are now signed on to Bella Union. The new album, Fear In Bliss, was recorded in LA which allowed the band to “leave the comfort zone of Oklahoma.” The album was produced by Thom Monahon who has worked with Devendra Banhart and Vetiver.
