Interview With David’s Lyre
INCREDIBLE, INFECTIOUS AND INSIGHTFUL ELECTRO-TROUBADOUR
We’re in the glorious honeymoon period of our new bromance with The Line Of Best Fit (TLOBF) and loving every bastard minute of it. It works like this – TLOBF use their big muscles, industry contacts and clever words to get artists interested and involved in our distinctly niche and cottage-industry-esque idea, and then help supplement our pictorially-insightful intraview with a more traditional piece of journalism on their site which may take the form of a review, a feature or (as is the case here) an interview. By plotting these two sets of coordinates in such a linked-up digital manner, it is hoped that we’ll be able to provide you with a deeper insight into the lives of the artists we feature. Which sure beats following people to the shops, breathing asthmatically down the phone to them or sifting through their bins.
The first metaphorical guinea-pig into our shared digital laboratory is David’s Lyre, who released his debut single Tear Them Down through East City Records on last year. Originally from London but currently based in Manchester, the mainly self-produced sound of David’s Lyre mixes grime-like beats with incredible vocals, infectious hooks and insightful, philosophical lyrics. You’ll notice that the free track we’re dishing out here is the exclusive NGOMA remix of Tear Them Down. You should devour it feverishly, and then demand more. The Sunday Times have already been singing his praises, and it’s only a matter of time before the rest of humanity is.
