Play Don’t Keep Me Awake, the newest single from Newcastle-based band LYRAS, and you’ll instantly be transported to your favourite rooftop terrace at 1am on a clear summer night, sipping your favourite whisky with another one ready to go on the table. It’s an instant classic; effortlessly cool, with an organic warmth, Don’t Keep Me Awake winds its way into your consciousness, drawing you in with sumptuous vocals, towering harmonies and subtly sophisticated instrumental performances.

Exploring themes of boredom, apathy and finding comfort for comfort’s sake, Don’t Keep Me Awake is a depiction of the female protagonist’s casual approach to what might end up being a one night stand, a stereotypically unfamiliar perspective that vocalist Ada Francis really enjoyed working with. The line-up of LYRAS is completed by Luke Gaul (guitarist), Grace Alexander (keyboards), Gavin Christie (drums) and Luke Elgie (bass), working together to create their own uniquely perfect blend of soul, jazz and contemporary R&B.

LYRAS will be continuing to write and release singles over the next year, while also honing their set, ready to return to live shows. Check this band out and let them keep you awake, because once you start listening to LYRAS you won’t ever want to stop.

LYRAS release Don’t Keep Me Awake on 2nd October, they support Smoove & Turrell at Tyne Bank Brewery, Newcastle on Saturday 3rd October
