With the release of their exceptional debut EP, “What’s On Your Mind” and a second one on the way, things are only looking up for Brighton four-piece ThylaWhat’s On Your Mind highlights like “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.


we are throwing a release party where it all began at Brighton Electric – this year has been about focus and channeling everything that Thyla has become. Big thanks to Joy. for helping us curate what we promise to be a statement of intent for 2020.

Brits pop quartet Thyla have unveiled an infectious new single today, “I Was Biting”

The up-and-coming, Brighton-based group have flirted with many different genres on their impressive slate of singles thus far: “Pristine Dream” with dark pop and glimmers of post-punk, “Tell Each Other Lies” with gloomy dream-pop, and their newest offering “I Was Biting” is a dazzling indie-pop tune, but it still contains remnants of Thyla’s trademark brooding atmosphere and commanding presence. Thyla majestically blend glassy distorted guitar tone with driving rhythms and lilting ethereal melodies; front women Millie Duthie brings crystal like beauty to Thyla’s blend of dynamic alt-rock. Herself, Danny Southwell, and Dan Hole met at college in early 2015 and found instant musical companionship but it wasn’t until guitarist Mitch Duce joined, that the band found their sound. 

The band’s magnetic frontwoman Millie Duthie sings of a desire to escape a world that revolves around capitalistic greed, and is constantly on the brink of imminent and monumental turmoil. (“I was biting the insides of my mouth / When I was trying to forget about / The dreams I’ve had,” she sings.)

Speaking about their new single, the band said: “I Was Biting” is about dystopian aspects of modern society and a discontent for it. We talk about a unanimous feeling of anxiety and a desire to live in a fictional state of our own dreams; to escape from the mundane routine and expectations of society.
