LYRAS are a band from Newcastle upon Tyne. Taking influences from artists such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Corrine Bailey Rae and Moonchild, LYRAS use dreamy vocal harmonies and a sophisticated sonic backdrop to create a sound grounded in soul, jazz and contemporary R&B.
Their debut single, ‘Don’t Keep Me Awake’ was written on the remote island of Lismore where the band enjoyed a week long writing residency. With their preferred method of writing being to collaborate face to face, the pandemic certainly complicated things however LYRAS continued to work as best as possible remotely until coming back together to plan their second single, ‘The Journey‘, which they released in April 2021. The band have plans for upcoming releases as well as focusing on crafting their sound while performing as much as possible.
