Last January the band were earmarked as one of NME’s 100 Essential Acts for 2018 alongside Dream Wife, Pale Waves, and Nilüfer Yanya, they’ve consistently received widespread support on the BBC Radio 1 airwaves, notably, they were picked by Huw Stephens as one of his Alternative tips for 2018. Their debut EP lead single ‘Candy’ and have subsequently received praise from all corners of the press (Pitchfork, Fred Perry Subculture, Stereogum, Line of Best Fit). After a three date run of UK shows with Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever at the end of October, 2018 will close with their first ticketed headline show in the capital at London’s Shacklewell Arms.

The Brighton, quartet Thyla have been catching fire with their unique dream-pop and post-punk fusion, and a string of standout singles, “Pristine Dream,” “I Was Biting,” “Blame” and “Tell Each Other Lies.” This week, they’ve just shared another new one in the form of “Blue.” Produced by Macks Faulkron and mixed by Alex Newport (At The Drive-In, The Mars Volta), “Blue” is marked by Millie Duthie’s sparkling vocals and transfixing presence, which linger over searing guitars that fluctuate from gentle dreamy bliss to fiery, head-banging lawlessness. “Blue” is another track that cements Thyla’s potential and showcases their sweet spot—engrossing post-punk finesse and ethereal dream-pop divinity try and catch them live soon.
