If you didn’t believe me when I said that Thyla were going to takeover the world, then I Was Biting is here to set you straight.
The Brighton group are currently on a rapid journey towards stardom, as Radio 1 and Huw Stephens are currently picking up on Thyla’s insatiable indie rock. I Was Biting continues Thyla’s love affair with shoegaze influenced, wavey guitars, mixing Cocteau Twins together with Echo & The Bunnymen and My Bloody Valentine for a collection of 80’s and 90’s post-punk, alt-rock that falls so perfectly into place, that you can almost picture Thyla being on Top of the Pops.
As every Thyla song goes, Millie’s vocals go hand in hand with Elis’ punchy guitar riffs, lifted even further by Danny’s destructive drumming and Dan’s intoxicating bass notes. The unison of heavy guitars, brutal drums and slick bass all being tied down by Millie’s interchanging vocals, which can be as brutally powerful as they are beautifully delicate will forever be one of Thyla’s best selling points, but on I Was Biting, the Brighton group go above and beyond their previous work, for a nostalgic hit of futuristic shoegaze that is becoming Thyla’s calling card.
