"There is no other band out there that can do pop music like Thyla" BBC Radio 1, Jack Saunders

Thyla are today sharing new track "3", another teaser from their long-awaited debut album out 28th January 2022 via Easy Life Records. On the new track "3", Thyla say "3 is about ego, pride and suffering and the folly of living in the past. It’s also about bouncing back from past traumas and coming to learn that suffering makes you who you are. It’s about not needing validation from anyone other than yourself. Whatever you decide to do in life has to be for you, not because you should but because you could!" Listen to "3" on DSPs here and on SoundCloud here. Thyla's self-titled debut album was heralded last month with lead single "Gum", which was premiered by Jack Saunders on BBC Radio 1, and championed by the likes of Brooklyn Vegan, Consequence, Dork, The Independent, The Line Of Best Fit, NME, Paste, Stereogum and more. Thyla will also headline The Waiting Room, London, on 16th Feb 2022. Tickets are available here. Thyla are a band that have regularly found their creative impulse heightened by a sense of heaviness and burden. Their music focusses on a journey that seems to be getting harder rather than easier, often highlighting struggles with how we attach identity and value to ourselves, and the sneaking feeling that the more we learn, the less we know. Debut album Thyla will be out 28th Jan 2022 via Easy Life Records. Pre-order here.

More about Thyla: Gleaning inspiration from everyday human experience – and blurring the lines of the personal and the fictional – Thyla play as voyeurs and interpreters. Their music is a playground for the shared experience, a place for art that doesn’t preach, or claim to have all of the answers. Instead, their work exists as signposts to emotional moments in time, channeling the chaos of modernity into a sanctuary built from balance and nuance, influenced by the disparate worlds of everything from Kate Bush to My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields. On their debut album the band makes natural a step onward from their earlier EPs, working in a way that removed outside influence. In the same way that their process allowed them to make their own decisions, the resulting album is also about allowing others space to reach their own conclusions. It asks questions, rather than demands answers, and often zeroes in on the world’s polarized state, knowing when confrontation or walking away is the answer. It is also an album of internal monologues made real, punctuated with regular references to the Lewis Carroll tale Alice In Wonderland.
