The band have been featured by Fat Cat Records Channel 4 The Daily Record, Holly Oaks and Kerrang and have had radio play on Radio 4, Radio 1, which is testament to their wide ranging appeal. Described as ‘A slow burning rock beauty’ and ‘haunting and hypnotic’ Thula Borah are set to make a massive impact both regionally and nationally.
With two members of the band being stand up comedians there is a certain humorous quality to their latest offering, a balance of light and dark which makes for a powerful idea conceptually. There is a thread running through the release, the feeling of anger at certain aspects of the modern world with nostalgia for childhood innocence which makes for a very concise and mature record from the Scottish foursome.

Naomi is now stepping it up with the recording of her new album, with the first single, the incredible Rivers Run a calling card for what is going to be the record that pushes this young talent firmly into the mainstream. It’s only a matter of time.
“I absolutely love writing and have done since I was 13 years old. It s such an amazing experience going from sitting at a piano to taking what you’ve created into a studio, with all these electronic sounds coming out, I just love the journey of a song.”

This cocktail of guitars, drums and vocals has already seen the five-piece picking up fans both locally, nationally and internationally, with BBC Introducing among their admirers. And now, with a new album (and lead single) titled ‘Council House Opera’ on the way, the second half of 2015 is set to see yet another big step forward for the band.
