Rising artist THALA is finding strength in her vulnerability on new EP In Theory Depression
Forging a path in hazy, lo-fi indie, this release is home to her sharpest, boldest songwriting yet, rendering these deeply personal explorations of self in vivid, ‘90s influenced indie-rock, and looming, psych-inspired walls-of-sound.
The new EP sees THALA dredging up the feelings she’d tried hard to bury before. As the usual bustle of her hectic everyday life was silenced, she filled that space with songwriting, delving deep into the complicated feelings she had previously left to somewhere deep within herself.
In Theory Depression marks the artist’s most introspective writing yet, but as much as these incisive lyrics excavate from hidden depths, they’re often paired with widescreen, cinematic-sounding melodies.
THALA undoubtedly has great potential. See for yourself live on 9 November 2023 at the Chapeau Rouge in Prague.
