Name, where are you from?
THYLA, Brighton/London.

Describe your style in three words?
Ash, Soil, & Pearls.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Warpaint - They brought an energy, or vibe for want of a better word, that I had never experienced before. After seeing them, I changed my approach to guitar and the way I listened to music.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
My Bloody Valentine and Nirvana. Both of these bands are huge influences on our sound, it would be a total honour.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Post-Punk, Shoegaze, Grunge, Dreampop.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Nikola Tesla - He was a genius so we reckon it would be an inspiring experience.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
Concorde 2, it’s in our hometown, and we were lucky enough to play to a packed out crowd, so the atmosphere was electric.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Warren Ellis. If you don’t know him, he is a member of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. He’s extremely inspiring to watch live.

Fronted by the charismatic Millie Duthie Thyla were tipped by Huw Stephens as one of his Alternative Tips for 2018. The band were headliners at the BBC’s Biggest Weekend Fringe event and appeared at The Great Escape where their live show earned them plenty of plaudits.
