Oxygen Thief‘s latest release, ‘The Half-Life Of Facts’, is filled with everything you could expect from the solo artist/three-piece. The name Oxygen Thief is a reference to someone who is so useless that all they do is waste oxygen by breathing and talking, often when they’re talking nonsense. This type of wit and irony shines through throughout the album. With undeniable punk elements throughout juxtaposed with acoustic and folk sides, the album is exciting and interesting straight from the opening chords.

What really is an acoustic record? Is it a collection of slower, chilled-out songs performed on acoustic instruments? Is it reworkings of already existing songs, performed in arrangements that make them suitable for the more delicate sound of acoustic instruments? Or is it just songs played on acoustic guitar, regardless of the genre/sound? Bristol’s Oxygen Thief (aka Barry Dolan) clearly believes the latter.

As an acoustic solo act, Barry Dolan always had noise in his heart. Now, Oxygen Thief has evolved to its second form, a raucous three-piece with guitars firmly plugged in and British alt rock/garage rock in their sights. ‘Accidents Do Not Happen, They Are Caused’, their latest mini-album, may whip by at a fair clip, but there’s enough good in here to suggest Dolan could abandon the Frank Turner-esque work and go distorted full-time.
