Based in Brighton, UK. 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. They spent much of late 2016 reimagining their centre and writing and recording new music that garners a distaste for the stale state of the industry.
After a hugely successful return in 2017, Brighton post-punk/new wave outfit Thyla kicked off 2018 as one of NME’s 100 essential acts for 2018 (one of 18 acts spotlighted in their exclusive photoshoot alongside Pale Waves, Nilufer Yanya and Sorry) and Huw Stephens’ (BBC Radio 1) alternative tip for the year ahead.
With widespread acclaim from the online community (Stereogum, Pitchfork, DIY, The Line Of Best Fit, NYLON and Dork) as well as their first ever UK tour supporting INHEAVEN under their belt, the quartet are primed for further time in the spotlight, having already supported a glut of acts including Sunflower Bean, Dream Wife, Luxury Death, Fickle Friends, Matt Maltese and Yonaka.
The Sebright Arms on 14th March marked their first ever London headline show and it was a triumphant raucous affair.
