Lyonheart Share New Single (feat. Aqualung)

The ‘No Brakes’ EP features four new tracks and takes its cue from the producer’s broad and eclectic 25-year range of music influences. Taking inspiration from the likes of early Massive Attack, Radiohead and Depeche Mode onto Disclosure and Mylo, the EP is a thrilling and bold statement of intent.

Opening number and lead single, ‘Refuge’ sees tumbling breakbeats, strummed guitars and pianoforte licks chime brilliantly with his brooding vocals and every-bit-as bittersweet lyrics.

At the opposite end of the breaks & tempo spectrum, the rhythmic percussion and shadowy beat loops of ‘Running’ dive it down into super-chilled musical waters. Co-written by Aqualung (he of ‘Strange And Beautiful’ fame), the track’s raw vocals cast a spellbinding effect across the track.

‘Guru’ brings symphonic and orchestral elements to the EP and through its vivid strings, adds no small degree of grandeur to the collection. Lyonheart underscores the calmer edge of his song with poignant piano lamentations and cooler bass movements.

Final track ‘Amelia’ finds Lyonheart at his most vocally uplifting and is awash with catchy harmonies, big strings, infectious, 80s-induced synth moments and neat FX aftereffects.

02.  ‘Running’ (Feat. Aqualung)
