Thunder and LIghtning is the first album from Everything But Arms. "It in compasses all we had hope to do from an album" says singer Will Powell. He continues with, “Thunder and Lightning is a big step forward for us. It sets the standard for things to come for us as a band and what we can achieve individually. It’s also a test for the way we write albums. We take an all killer no filler approach to writing, so we are proud of every single note, lyric and melody on the album” BBC Introducing and a few other reviews have this to say about the album:
“Everything But Arms are taking venues up and down the country by storm, with their too catchy, too cleverly written lyrics and odd but endearing subject topics. They assault audiences with a force of dynamic energy that really set stages on fire” (Punk Prospect).
“An Arsenal of Sound” (The Guide) “Great song titles, Great Lyrics” (BBC Introducing) "Their carefully crafted harmonies and combined knowledge of music theory and practical experience provide the perfect recipe for the perfect album" (Katie Lee, Flaneur UK)
