Perhaps better known as the drummer for bands such as Fat White Family and Phobophobes, Dan Lyons is now ready to go it alone and has created a fantastic debut record in “SubSuburbia”. After living the life of a typical itinerant musician, Dan has settled on the Kent coast in Margate with his (romantic & musical) partner Freya Warsi to escape the noise and pollution of city life. After kicking off his solo career in 2017, Dan was finally centre stage. And performing with a host of musicians from the South London music scene and beyond to complete the line-up for his backing band.
The songs written for Dan’s debut album were mostly done so between Paris and London during a long, difficult summer crowded with personal loss and intrepid soul searching. They paint a picture of city life, a keyhole glimpse into an intricate and fragile heart. His sound has been described as “Quintessential surrealist Anglo – pop”. Echoes of Echo & The Bunnymen and ‘Rubber Soul’ era Beatles entwine with lo-fi sensibilities that nod towards The Go Betweens, Syd Barrett and The Clean.
