Thula Borah Brood, Expand, Challenge and Deliver
The latest instalment in the Thula Borah story has arrived. Praised in the past for their haunting and diverse sounds, the Glaswegian band now presents a six track album that drips quality from every pore. The mix includes brooding, haunting soundscapes, some more direct compositions and a couple of longer songs. Those lengthier tracks allow the band to explore deeper themes and ideas through the natural progression of the music.
Lloyd sums up how the band feel, “We’re proud of the results of all the hard work we have put into creating this album. It continues to showcase our post-rock and alternative roots but also marries together some of our poppiest, direct output alongside some of our heaviest, dense and (most) progressive work yet.”
The band intends to support this exciting release with a flurry of live dates in their native Scotland. Hailing from Glasgow the band will go beyond their home city and visit Edinburgh, Inverness, Aberdeen and Dundee.
So just who is this album for? Back to Lloyd, “Hopefully there’s something for everyone on there. The album closer “Zero Progression” is probably our favourite song to date.”
Thula Borah now proudly present Qualia. Prepare to sit back and enjoy the ride as the album broods, expands, challenges and delivers. It’s available from the 22nd of July 2013 on iTunes, Amazon and many more digital locations as well as Bandcamp. Physical copies will be available at gigs as well as from the band’s website.
