Thyla have released their self-titled debut album this week. Alongside the release, the trio has also planned a London show and shared a video for the latest single, ‘Kin’.
Inspired by experience from personal and imaginary situations, the band’s music – much like their music videos – are designed to capture a moment in time that is uniquely theirs.
“There are psychological benchmarks of success we all feel like we should hit, and we’re all guilty of mapping out our future timelines and expectations.”Millie Duthie
Of “Kin” lead singer and guitarist, Millie Duthie comments: “Kin is about the feeling of pressure to prove yourself to friends and family. The amount of times each of us have gone home or out with old friends and the first question has been “Are you still working in the café?” to which the answer still remains an awkward, ‘eh…yes’. There are psychological benchmarks of success we all feel like we should hit, and we’re all guilty of mapping out our future timelines and expectations. The reality is that there really isn’t anything further from the truth. Life is unpredictable, it weaves and bobs, it meanders and sometimes sprints, but each path is unique and incomparable.”
