Brighton's Thyla channel their indie-goth on new single Tell Each Other Lies, a magnificent sounding opus that lays its foundations with shadowy and brooding atmospherics before rousing haunted-chanteuse vocals and a powerful chorus light the touchpaper. If you’re the sort of person that thinks that the likes of Pale Waves, despite their look, are ‘far too pop’ and want your indie guitar bands darker, edgier and harder hitting, then Thyla will tick your boxes.
Although there’s no compromise in the band’s sound here, the song itself deals exactly with that idea, albeit compromise in a relationship; finding a way around things to make it work rather than an attempt at trying to change someone through confrontation.
Thyla support Femme in Brighton tonight at the Hope & Ruin before a couple of dates with The Wytches in Liverpool and Sheffield in early December.
