Bio

Pulling influences from dream pop, garage and shoegaze, Hyla is a project formed by Alex Hayes
who has played and toured extensively in Perth bands such as Abbe May and The Silents over the last decade. HYLA is an outfit reminiscent of shoegaze classics My Bloody Valentine, the Verve and Jesus and Mary Chain, with a taste of newer garage rock influences such as Ty Segall and BRMC.

The result is a swirl of fuzzed out guitars, layered melodic vocals, and a sound that is at once fresh and nostalgic. The bands latest single ‘Swam Out’ has been well received around Australia and overseas and is currently receiving Triple j play. HYLA’s debut LP ‘OSAKA’ produced by Sam Ford (Pond, Peter Bibby) Released September 15 2017.

What a dream. This is beautiful. You're wearing all of your influences on your sleeves, and you wear them well.
