Brighton four piece Thyla return with their boldest release to date, ‘Blame’. It is a bolstering, boisterous cut further adding to the growing excitement from the press and the public surrounding this new band. Produced by Macks Faulkron and mixed by Alex Newport (At The Drive-In, Weaves), ‘Blame’ is frantic and tough, spiky guitar riffs and tingling percussion beats. It is softened by the seductive femininity of Millie Duthie’s vocal yet her lyrics are equally jagged as she barks the track’s recurring hook “I can’t blame you, can only hate you.”

The band have drawn expected comparisons to London grungers Wolf Alice, yet this has the frivolous frustrations of Marmozets and Wallows. Ahead of the track’s release, the band stated: “’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.”

After picking up a host of tips from across the musical spectrum for this year, this exciting four piece are delivering on promise and releasing quality tracks that step the line between shoegaze and scum.

After the release of their exceptional debut EP, What’s On Your Mind?, earlier this year, things are only looking up for Brighton four-piece Thyla. Singles like “Tell Each Other Lies” “Pristine Dream,” “Only Ever” and “Blue” cultivate a misty dream-pop wonderland with frontwoman Millie Duthie’s enigmatic lead vocals as their euphoric centerpiece. Then add a framework of palatial, lush guitars and a dash of moody post-punk for good measure, and you have all the bearings of a band worth obsessing over.
