Filled with potent songwriting and coming-of-age anthems straight from the heart, these everyday love stories surrender to life’s insecurities. On twotwentytwo THALA continues to embrace vulnerability, summoning long-buried emotions to colour her ardent love for lyricism amid psych-tinged ‘90s indie rock soundscapes. Evoking the soundscapes of Slowdive, Deerhunter and Mazzy Star alongside the widescreen pop of boygenius and Snail Mail and the subtle punk influences of Juliana Hatfield.
Blissful guitars and evocative crescendos permeate THALA’s unique vision of dreampop, revelling in soaring choruses and intimate storylines. On its surface, twotwentytwo boasts a kind of glorious emotive draw. However, while THALA wants her songs to feel nostalgic, it’s the complexity of her songwriting that sees her modern compositions really resonate and she is keen to stress her lyrics can be interpreted in numerous ways.
“Thala is indie music at its most potent: alluring, spirited and deeply affecting. How lucky we are this is just the beginning” Rough Trade
