They cite their sonic influences as Ride and Spiritualized and they love songwriters like the Byrds, Velvet Underground and Richard Ashcroft. Hyla is the Perth combo who have built up a strong following in their native Australia and are now ready to unleash their sound globally. Hyla comprise of long time friends Alex Board (vocals/guitar) and Rob Stephens (bass), teamed up with guitarist Michael Antonas and drummer Ethan Darnell. They are currently working on their debut album, expected release early 2015.
