Often found between the bric-a-brac and neon glow of their favourite Brighton drinking and planning den The Bee’s Mouth, as Thyla, Millie Duthie (vocals), Dan Hole (bass), Danny Southwell (drums) and Mitch Duce (guitar) find comfort in the sanctuary of their second home. Out of town, they craft explosive walls of sound from within a dock-side warehouse, culling and tailoring the sonic offspring with immaculate attention to detail.
Putting the personal over the political, the band’s first self-released EP Everything At Once stands defiant as it sees the 4-piece stoke their fire with former setbacks, the turmoil of family illness, juggling shitty day jobs, and navigating modern age induced anxiety.
Laid down across two locations; Everything At Once’s drums and bass were recorded at Brighton’s Electric Studio with producer Josh “Hoagie” Harrison (Royal Blood, British Sea Power, Blood Red Shoes) before the band decamped to Mitch’s countryside home to cram their gear and themselves into his intimate cabin studio.
Praised for their knack of crafting stand-out singles since the release of their debut EP What’s On Your Mind, Thyla have stormed the airwaves on BBC Radio 1 (Huw Stephens, Jack Saunders) 6 Music (Steve Lamacq), and KCRW in LA. Making the most of Millie’s duel citizenship with debut US shows at SXSW, they’ve tantalised tastemakers on both sides of the Atlantic (Stereogum’s ‘40 best new bands’, Paste’s ‘Top 7 of SXSW’, NME's ‘Essential Acts,’ Dork's 'Top Tips for 2019,’ and Pitchfork). Live, their set is a taught, aural assault having shared stages with Slaves, Rolling Blackout Coastal Fever, touring with Bass Drum of Death, and entrancing festival goers at Live at Leeds, Isle of Wight, and The Great Escape.
