Thulah Borah is a four-piece band from Glasgow, whose sound is probably best described as a mixture of alternative-rock and post-rock, drawing influence from the likes of 90s guitar bands such as Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, REM and Radiohead merged with the dynamics and ambience of Mogwai, Sigur Ros and Isis but with some subtle slowcore influences of Low and Red House Painters too, much like another of their influences, Glasgow's much missed Aereogramme.

The band started as Matt and Lloyd jamming with a drum machine before becoming a fully fledged band as of late 2009 and they have since been gigging extensively, playing venues such as King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Nice N Sleazy, The Classic Grand and Oran Mor in Glasgow as well as at the Edinburgh Festival and various venues up and down Scotland, including a Scottish tour in 2013.

They have received airplay in as diverse places as BBC Radio One and Four, Radio Scotland, Radio North Angus, Heartland FM, Subcity and Amazing Radio as well as many stations and podcasts around the globe, and have also received favourable reviews in the Daily Record. Thula Borah also recently reached the final of the Billy Kelly Songwriting competition which was won by Dumb Instrument who are currently achieving success with their single 'Suffering From Scottishness' and its accompanying album.
