Thula Borah - Live Secretly (2012)

The second album from this Glaswegian band.

Glasgow has a pretty respectable indie rock scene. Thula Borah is among the better bands in this scene. They lean a lot more towards post rock and shoegaze than indie rock though. Their sound and music is shoegaze and gloomy. It is driven by guitars and a vocal pretty low in the mix. The result sounds like impending doom and a miserable life. The sound is also epic and majestic too. This album is perfect mood music.

My only and major gripe with this album is the lack of any great songs or even melody lines. But this album is still a very good album which creates a lot of moods and ambience. I would like to hear more from this band, please.

3.5 points
