★ New single 'Never Let Go' out now!
A perfect blend of dark electronic pop, LYRA’s creativity manifests itself in songs, stories and art. Her 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. LYRA’s Rupert Christie (Kate Bush, Coldplay, Aurora) produced debut EP ‘W.I.L.D’ was self-released to critical acclaim and over a million streams on Spotify.
That EP led to sold out shows in Ireland and London, festival dates at The Great Escape, Music Cork, Latitude and Electric Picnic and being featured on the 30th anniversary rework of U2’s The Joshua Tree -'New Roots ‘alongside Kodaline, Gavin James, U2 and Imelda May -which went to number 1 in Ireland.
LYRA has spent the past year honing her sound, writing with the likes of Phil Cook (Birdy, Ellie Goulding), Carey Willetts (Dermot Kennedy) and Braque (Rag N Bone Man, Bastille) She recently supported Dermot Kennedy on tour and played with James Bay at the Live At The Marquee in Cork -an event she has always aspired to perform at and to call for a toast, her song ‘Emerald’ was synced in the latest Guinness advert -her favourite homeland
Lyra will play the Grand Social on Wednesday 29th May with tickets from €14.45 incl booking fee on sale now from Ticketmaster
