Enjoy The Dreamy Vibe Of Young Lyre's 'Weekend'
Landing on our radar courtesy of a sensibility that fuses mellow grooves and danceable, euphoric vibes with an open-hearted lyrical examination of love's ebb and flow, New Zealand's Young Lyre are sure to have you as quickly in your feelings as they are to have you out on the dance-floor. With their new 'Weekend' EP seeing their indie-pop/rock sound being washed in the buoyant aura of a uplifting synth-pop shimmer, the five-piece prove they can guide a giddy groove just as easily as they can tug at yearing heart-strings.
With singer Jordan Curtis' poised pop vocal providing the sensitively attuned emotional direction, the 'Weekend' EP sees the band - Sanjay Bangs, Kiran Rai, Simon Roots and Matt Judd - conjure up an infectious confection of indie-synth pop that frolics, muses and swells with a dreamy fascination. Inscribing an emotional arc that bends from the inchoate and tremulous searchings of a nebulous love through to the ruminative realization of inconclusively anchored emotions, the EP embraces the all to familiar vagaries of love. From 'Ski Mantra's love-fueled promise and 'We Go Faster's giddy, tentative whirl of emotion, through to the introspective sensitivity of 'Weekend', Young Lyre have captured the whirl of emotion that comes with the flush of love with a vivacious élan.
