Premiere: Lyra translates the lush soundscapes of ‘Falling’ into physical form with new video

Cork hailing artist Lyra released her first single of the year ‘Falling‘ last month and we liked it a lot: think lush, cinematic soundscapes juxtaposed by tribal percussion rhythms and a soaring vocal melody that you’ll be humming all day.

Today we’re premiering its new music video, shot on the coastline in the English town of Margate.

Directed by Tom Dream, the video features various shots of Lyra in backdrop compositions of natural, open and dramatic spaces including a fog-hued cauliflower field and vast ocean. The transparent veil sheathing her is a constant, tinged with varying shades of teal and vermillion.

The vast panoramic landscapes that prevail in the video feel like physical translations of the big soundscapes we heard in the single, it comes across as a very faithful representation of song’s narrative. Lyra said:

“It was so much fun making this video for ‘Falling’ – my first ever video and the whole team involved were an absolute dream to work with. I wanted this video to be a little insight into how I perform – I go a bit wild on stage when the music just takes over me!

Along with the video, Lyra has announced a headline London show at Thousand Islandon on April 16th. Tickets available at £8+ here.
