Torn between wisdom and madness, melancholy and hope, THYSELF’s compositions are contrasting and navigating among these states of mind, echoing the works of Radiohead, Suuns or even Raketkanon. Combining raw distorted rock and subtle electronic hints, the nuances are clashing in soft and also nervous melodies, where love and war are one.
Formed in 2010, THYSELF is led by four sound enthusiasts with various influences. After three years of common writing and composing, the band released a selfproduced five tracks EP including Behind Clouds, their first music video. Following, comes a succession of shows across Belgium and France. In April 2014, Thyself was invited in the 50 Degrés Nord TV show (Arte Belgium), won the Zikametz festival contest (FR) and came second in the Verdur Rock contest (Namur) the following month. At the same time, they were elected Vi.be artists of the month by Indiestyle magazine, reac h e d t h e f i n a l e o f t h e “Concours Circuit” Contest (Brussels) and played at the Propulse Festival (Brussels). In may 2017, Thyself creates an interactive website and they give a foretaste of their first album with «Birds/Words» where everyone can play the different instruments and experience a unique version of the song. «Bullet Head», the second single, comes out as a live videoclip. The band reaches the second place at the Maanrock Rally 2017 amongst over 100 bands and releases their album «TOPAZ» on the 28th of October.
