JOE’s Song Of The Day #771 - LYRA ‘Falling’
LYRA bringing the big sound earworm.
This might be a very hot take, but having listened to the latest track from LYRA, I'm going to describe it as a cross between Enya and Florence and the Machine.
Hailing from Cork, LYRA is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has spent the last couple of years honing her sound, writing with the likes of Phil Cook (Birdy, Ellie Goulding), Carey Willetts (Dermot Kennedy) and Braque (Rag'n'Bone Man, Bastille).
'Falling' is a very polished piece of electronic pop and will inevitably live in your ears for a while after you hear it. Catchy chorus, soaring vocals, it really does tick all the pop boxes.
LYRA's love of vocal talents such as Kate Bush, Lykke Li and Bat for Lashes is obvious: part vintage, part contemporary, she exudes a sense of being free from the constraints of time and era. Make no mistake, this is an electronic pop tour-de-force from the Cork artist.
