Thyla - Blue

“Their moody tracks sound like direct descendants of Cocteau Twins and The Cure” - Pitchfork
“These are the sort of songs that come out of nowhere and hit you upside the head” - Stereogum

Tipped as one of Stereogum's 40 best new bands 2018 and Dork's 'Top Tips' for 2019, Brighton dream-pop outfit Thyla are preparing to release debut EP, 'What's On Your Mind' on 1st February 2019

Receiving an abundance of excellent press (Stereogum, Pitchfork, Paste, DIY, Line of Best Fit), the band have recently shared the stage with artists including Slaves, Sunflower Bean, Rolling Blackout CF and Dream Wife, as well as festival appearances such as Live at Leeds, Dot to Dot and Isle of Wight.
The band met whilst studying at university, with their first official release 'Ferris Wheels' out in early 2017. Since then it's been a consecutive release of singles, including a release on LA label B3SCI for the track "Blame" in 2018, mixed by Alex Newport (Bloc Party, At The Drive-In, Estrons).

With strong support at BBC Radio 1 from Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders, being featured on 6 Music's Steve Lamacq show, and spins at KCRW in LA ,2019 is looking to be a busy year for indie post punk outfit.
