Special Thumbs is an OKC-based indie band melodically exploring rock, blues, psych, and pop. Their music features lush vocal harmonies, bluesy guitar riffs, and multi-textured synths that weave a unique and colorful aural tapestry.
Starting as a three-piece outfit, members of Special Thumbs met at university and bonded over a love of classic rock. They began writing songs influenced by bands like The Velvet Underground and The Kinks, as well as modern artists such as Tame Impala and MGMT. In 2014, after adding a fourth member and playing around OKC’s arts districts, Special Thumbs found a local following and subsequently began work on POLLEN in their home studio. Throughout the recording process Special Thumbs became a two-man project and enlisted the help of mixer/producer/wizard Michael Trepagnier to complete their debut EP – POLLEN (Released 10/14/2016). Special Thumbs has since added three new members and is actively gigging around Oklahoma!
