Thyla were in Milton Keynes on Thursday night for their UK tour, bringing their post punk sound to The Craufurd Arms. Thyla manage to blend together the powerful vocals and driving bass line with textured guitar playing that gives their whole sound a greater depth. They sound big, the blending of their punk sound with more dreamy, melodic elements really pulls everything together to sound fresh and relevant. The closest comparison I could really draw on would be Wolf Alice, but don’t get me wrong – Thyla are their own band with their own style.
The band’s performance was really tight and professional, real passion coming out in Millie Duthie’s vocals. You can see and hear she feels and believes in every word that she sings which really helped to build an emotional connection with the audience.
We was treated to classic Thyla tracks such as Blue as well as new kid on the block, Two Sense, as well as currently unreleased material, which slotted perfectly into their set and I can’t wait to be released!
If there is any justice in this world, Thyla will make it big, and soon. They blend indie, punk, shoegaze and rock with ease – this is a band that are getting better and better and I can’t wait to see where they go next with their sound.
