Lyra Dream of the Country of Love on Their Alluring New Release “France”

Wouldn’t moving there be so romantic?

Based in London, Lyra is an exciting soul and R&B act redefining its genre with a unique blend of 90s R&B culture and contemporary funk, soul, and pop influences.

Drawing inspiration from an eclectic mix of artists, including Lily Moore, Olivia Dean, Stevie Wonder, Don Broco, Polyphia, Tom Misch, Cory Wong, and Amy Winehouse, Lyra seamlessly fuses these influences to create a sound that straddles the line between nostalgic and refreshingly modern. Easily one of the most exciting acts to come to prominence in recent years, the future continues to look bright for these stars in the making.

Since forming in 2016, the band has graced some of London’s most iconic venues, such as The Bedford, The Spice of Life, 229, The Camden Assembly, and 93 Feet East, earning a reputation for their captivating live performances.

Lyra’s music has also gained significant attention on the airwaves, with multiple plays on BBC Introducing and Track of the Week. Honestly, our advice would probably be to keep an eye on Lyra. As they continue to rise in their quest for greatness, it’s been banger after banger, and we don’t see that changing anytime soon.

Lyra’s latest creation, “France,” is as silky smooth as one would expect from the band exploring the limits of soul, R&B, and funk. The instrumentals are alluring, the vocals are crisp, and lyrics like “I’m in the mood to wine and dine, it's so good that the stars align” are delivered with an almost magical cadence that’s as enchanting as it is alluring. In many ways, “France” feels like a wonderful representation of Lyra’s artistic identity, feeling like a warm, groovy soul-pop anthem here just in time for summer.

“France” is a vibrant release that feels like an amazing fusion of soulful melodies, vocal performances, funky rhythms, and pop sensibilities, pushing the genre's envelope. Whenever you’re ready, tap in and stream Lyra’s new release, “France”, on all majour streaming platforms.
