TUNE Thyla - Candy
Riding a wave of momentum that shows no signs of stopping anytime soon, Brighton’s latest indie juggernauts Thyla announce plans for their debut EP and share the mesmerising lead single "Candy", further solidifying their status as one of the UK’s finest emerging indie acts.
Masterminded by frontwoman Millie Duthie’s commanding vocals, "Candy" strikes a much more sombre tone than their previous material with a series of carefully constructed guitar parts and dreamy intervals capped off with another trademark anthemic chorus.
Earmarked as one of NME’s 100 Essential Acts for 2018 alongside Dream Wife, Nilüfer Yanya and Pale Waves, the quartet demonstrated their potential in the first half of the year sharing bills with Sunflower Bean, INHEAVEN and Fickle Friends as well as encouraging displays at The Great Escape, Live At Leeds and Dot To Dot.
Praise from all corners of the press (Pitchfork, Stereogum, DIY) and recent shows alongside Slaves have only added to the growing excitement surrounding the band heading into what promises to be a busy autumn period.
Discussing their forthcoming release, the four-piece stated: “You know when you have impending doom and you have no idea why because there’s nothing specifically wrong that you can put your finger on, and your dreams are messed up, and when you wake up you wonder what they mean? That’s what Candy is about”.
Produced by Macks Faulkron and mixed by Iggy B (Bella Union), Thyla’s Candy is released 27th September and will be available on all digital platforms.
