Artist Of The Week

Thailand–based trio My Life As Ali Thomas took shape in 2014 when frontwoman Pie joined guitarist Rack and drummer Taw to develop the band’s free–spirited musical style. Not adhering to one set genre, My Life As Ali Thomas blend ambient Brit rock influences with indie–pop inspirations and Pie’s distinctive folk sensibilities; her soft, yet highly emotive vocal presence and poetic aptitude shining at the heart of every track. Releasing their debut album Paper via Warner Music Thailand in 2016, the three–piece now boast millions of streams with placements on key editorial Spotify playlists, alongside regular appearances at the major Asian music festivals. The band made history in 2019 when they became the first Thai act to play at the renowned SXSW Festival in Austin, TX – a testament to the burgeoning international appeal of My Life as Ali Thomas, which glistens with each solid release from the band. Following on from January’s well–received single “Rinn,” the collective continues to captivate their fans as they showcase their differentiating and experimental take on creating music with the release of “My Red Golden Sun.” With regards to the track, the band explains: “‘My Red Golden Sun’ will be the most familiar sounding song for My Life As Ali Thomas fans. It’s our take on campfire folk–rock, talking about old love and moving on. Love, and finding love, is like chasing the sun. We chase it simply because it’s what we do, and though the sun hurts us sometimes, could be disappointing or even bad to us, we must not stop chasing. ‘My Red Golden Sun’ celebrates old dreams that didn’t come true, and reminds us to dream anew.”
