The moody sounds of Thyla are back and generating even more ‘The Cure’ vibes than before. They have come crashing into the music scene once again generating a very unique and punk-inspired soundscape which has come out of nowhere. Edging ever closer towards the forefront of emerging British indie music, Brighton’s Thyla has delivered another glistening reminder of their limitless potential in their power-hungry new single ‘Blame’.
The band, marshalled by frontwoman Millie Duthie’s soaring vocals, exemplifies a group at the very top of their game with this latest display of ecstasy soaked in kiss ass vibes, brimming with creativity and accompanied by a series of out of this world riffs. This feet of musical talent is all encompassed within their trademark anthemic chorus which rings through the track generating more fuel for the fire to burn with. They have been highlighted alongside the likes of Pale Waves and Sorry in NME’s 100 Essential Acts for 2018 with NME also stating that “Their future looks pretty rosy from where we’re sitting”. These indie juggernauts have already attracted a whirlwind of online support this year form the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum and DIY magazine with Stereogum claiming that “These are the sort of songs that come out of nowhere and hit you upside the head”, which I find very hard to disagree with.
Alongside sharing bills with acts including Sunflower Bean, INHEAVEN and Fickle Friends Thyla have also managed to gain significant airtime as well. They have been named by Huw Stephens from BBC Radio 1 as one of his Alternative Tips for 2018, the post-punk outfit will be headlining the BBC’s Biggest Weekend Fringe event later this month as well as appearances at The Great Escape where their tenacious live show is sure to earn plenty of praises.
Ahead of the track’s release, the band stated that: “Blame is about the uncharacteristic choices people make when they’re trying to be like someone else, for the sake of someone else, at a cost to themselves. It’s a neurotic frenzy of guitars with self-conscious lyrics about the state of paralysis jealously puts you in; blind anger with no real solution”. It’s safe to say that this indie get up are surely swirling in the media attention they deserve but with glittering guitars and soaring vocals who can blame them?
