Playing a brand of New Wave/Post Punk inspired by bands like Gold Class, Drab Majesty or electro pop legends Depeche Mode, Zurich based THYMIAN features the multi-instrumentalist Josip Tijan.
As several changes in his life occurred, THYMIAN used his music and creative drive as a valve to process the experiences he made during this time. It is a record of change and self-reflection.
The rich baritone voice, driving basslines and reverb drenched guitars are only some of THYMIAN’s distinct trademarks.
His debut 4-track EP was recorded and produced by himself in a cozy corner of his bedroom in Zurich, Switzerland.
«One can’t help but compare Josip Tijan’s vocals to And Also The Trees’ Simon Jones, yet the synth-laden rhythms and resonate guitars are driven by melody first and foremost, such as on the track Composure.»
«Modern Fantasy by Thymian is simply wonderful - from the opening few bars you’ll be hooked. This is tasteful, uplifting minimalist post-punk at its very best. Rich baritone vocals, on point guitars, sparing use of sequencers and a hook and melody to die for. The lyrics are the absolute icing on the cake too. Sit back, relax and let this Modern Fantasy wash over you. Superb.»
