Brighton bunch THYLA are, to be honest, nauseatingly good. With their previous singles they’ve explored floaty shoegaze and brash, 80s power-pop (check out ‘Pristine Dream’ which we played on our radio visit the other day). Now they take their sound in a grungier direction on ‘I Was Biting’, an unstoppable stomper of a tune. Millie Duthie’s crystalline vocal booms throughout, while fuzzed-up guitars bloom as if from some lost My Bloody Valentine track. Gradually proving themselves to be more than just another south coast buzz-band, we can’t wait to hear what’s next from this majestic new outfit.
