In 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. They have built a sterling live reputation having shared bills with Sunflower Bean, Fickle Friends, INHEAVEN, and recently Slaves alongside promising displays at The Great Escape, Live at Leeds, and Dot to Dot. They’ve announced plans for a debut EP with the release of 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.
"Considering Thyla is a new band without a full-length release to their name yet, these are the sort of songs that come out of nowhere and hit you upside the head: They are gigantic, assured, and memorable, partially thanks to their instrumentation skill-fully toeing the line between melancholy and endorphin rush and partially thanks to the soaring vocals of frontwoman Millie Duthie” Stereogum.
