Thandii’s sound is bold and playful, and in her words “an attempt to put a female stamp on an otherwise male-dominated sound.”
Beginning with “Another One”, Thandii is taking a great leap forward. From the rippling harp, through the beats which cross jazz into disco, right into Thandii’s gorgeously echoing vocal and a wah-wah heavy guitar solo that’s right out of 1970s there’s music which matches where it was created. Not quite pastoral, but a natural feel which bends to the inevitable modern surroundings.
Thandii explains the new songs were all “created here (in Margate) and Graham and I were trying to bring in this element of easy-breezy, ‘70s dreamy kind of thing….all the ‘e’ words haha! But still kind of being experimental with the vocal placement or the drum sound…. there’s definitely more of a ‘70s psychedelic element to them.”
2017 saw the debut EP release – “Forgetful.” Support came in the shape of Huw Stephens (BBCR1), Abbie McCarthy (BBC Introducing In Kent), Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music), Clash, LOBF, Independent and Wonderland.
Live shows included support slots with Theme Park and Jalen N’Gonda, as well as sets at Huw Stephens Presents and LeeFest.
2018 starts with Thandii being chosen as one of Abbie McCarthy’s BBC Introducing Picks of 2018.
