The London-based Cork artist Lyra debut with an impressively polished ambient pop song called ‘Rabbit In The Headlights’ last month that simultaneously recalled Kate Bush, Enya, FKA Twigs and Swedish pop.
Last night, Lyra played her debut gig at Communion Music’s night in London and she dropped ‘Emerald’, her second track just before it.
That song was largely about embracing her Irish accent – something she does here too. Also embraced, big drums and production, sustained chords and a grand chorus.
This song was also featured in the RTE TV Show Striking Out starring Amy Huberman in January 2017.
Production comes from Rupert Christie (Kate Bush, Coldplay, Aurora, Say Lou Lou).
