LYON Drops New Single”FaceLife” From Upcoming Album Trinity
Solaris and Horizon Wirelss drummer LYON, returns with another vibrant and riveting release, “FaceLife”(download at Bandcamp). As one of our favorite up and coming artists here at Sensible Reason, LYON has knack for crafting spell-binding tracks that incorporate mesmerizing percussion and lush melodies.
“FaceLife” is the latest triumph to emerge from the talented drummer hailing from upstate New York. “FaceLife” take the listener on a majestic journey through sound, bending and twisting into existence with a whimsical arrangement and dazzling array of well-produced elements.
The entire track seems to vibrate with a deep seated energy. From the infectious vocal sample to the unrelenting bass line, “FaceLife” pulsates with an undeniably rambunctious appeal. What I love most about “FaceLife” is the seemingly opposing elements working so wonderfully in concert together. Careening drums intertwine with luscious piano strokes and glorious synths, to paint a perpetually evolving picture. LYON certainly has a talent for creating captivating soundscapes for his listener to explore.
This track perfectly embodies the high level or production that we have come to expect from LYON. Always willing to surround his listeners in a masterfully devised sonic cocoon, LYON once again shows us what a steady hand and open mind can create. There are elements of Break Science, Shpongle and Pretty Lights prevalent throughout “FaceLife”. Especially hidden beneath the funky hip-hop percussion and psychedelic synth work.
This latest release has us extremely excited for LYON’s next full album endeavor Trinity, which is set to drop very soon. You can check out our other review of LYON’s first two albums ONYX and EXODUS. Watching this artist’s evolution over time has been a joy, and I can’t wait to see what new musical expanses LYON ventures into next.
Stay tuned to Sensible Reason for the latest from LYON as well as his other projects Horizon Wireless and SOLARiS.
