About The Thoughts

Seattle, WA

The Thoughts came about in 2007. Ian Williams and Jon Horwath, who have played together for a long, long time, joined with Seattle violinist Katie Mosehauer (The Monday Mornings, Lucy Bland, Carrie Biell) to play songs that are pretty, violent, intimate, and unexpected.

Wandering through winters past, lovers lost, quixotic dreams, and inevitable change, The Thoughts capture a sound that is visceral and haunting.

Lonely, sailing melodies rub and stretch between violin and voice and give way to cascading, rolling percussion. Beautiful ideas are challenged by the raw and primal, creating utterly believable songs filled with tension, emotion, and occasional resolution.

Drawing from influences like Elliott Smith, Neutral Milk Hotel and King Crimson, The Thoughts amble nimbly between traditional songs and departures from expected form.

Top-notch musicianship also leads this trio to expand the expectations of their instruments, most notably in the impressionistic percussion style and the use of voice as both purveyor of stories but also as it’s own expressive instrument.

A shared desire to create nuanced and dynamic music is what brought this band together and also what makes their freshman effort, Consider the Bear, a work to be remembered.
