Part of why reaching adulthood sucks is the amount of disturbing truths that we need to face – social inequality, tricky relationships, DMV, passive aggression, etc. Brighton band Thyla captures those moments of involuntary enlightenment that we go through when we realize the unglamorous truths of our world in new single “Fade.” Within the upbeat riffs, there is a strange sense of bittersweet acceptance as the quartet muses on our core human drives that often come from a place of self-centeredness. Cheers to another existential crisis:

Speaking of the track, lead singer Millie Duthie shared:

“As you grow up you realise things aren’t as they seem. The more you learn the more you realise you have to learn, and it can be a really painful experience taking off the blinkers of your youth. It’s hard to come to terms with the fact that a lot of your drive is based on a hedonistic attitude. ‘Fade’ is about waking up to some ugly truths about your personal life and development. How strong are your relationships really and where are you headed if you stay on this trajectory?”
