Lyra

‘Emerald’

, The best songs of the week
The Cork-born artist drops her second single.
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 week, Lyra played her debut gig at Communion Music’s night in London and she dropped ‘Emerald’, her second track. That previous 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.

Production comes  from Rupert Christie (Kate Bush, Coldplay, Aurora, Say Lou Lou).

Sampha

‘Timmy’s Prayer’

, The best songs of the weekThe British singer takes time out from collaborating with Kanye to release his first track in 3 years.

In the five years he’s been making music in the public, first with SBTRKT and later on his own, there’s been a slow release of solo tunes from Sampha. His last solo material was ‘Too Much’/’Happens’ in 2013 but in the meantime, he’s featured on songs from Kanye West, Drake and Katy B.

New song ‘Timmy’s Prayer’ arrives three years after his last solo track and came with a message that suggested the guy has been having a hard old time (“It’s been a while. I’ve had a lot to process these past couple of years, as we all do, and it’s hard to articulate sometimes”). As ever, the honeyed tones of his voice are always emotive and welcome to these ears.
