Dan Lyons is a musician and songwriter based in Margate, Kent. He cut his teeth playing in Fat White Family and Phobophobes , and co writing songs with Misty Miller 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.
Dan's debut LP 'SubSuburbia' is '... like a magnifying glass over a bloodstained map of the UK. Broken relationships drowned in booze and chemicals, a birds eye view of a total destruction of hope, a hopelessly romantic saga. A trip to France, memories of drunk school friends and first loves, purity and the scrap of positivity that pulls us all through when we’re at our worst. Holding a mirror to the very best and the absolute worst of British people, places and things.'
“… breath-taking beauty, marrying the cohabiting ideals of sin and redemptive innocence in the same fashion as freedom springs from the oppressive cloud of a dystopian metropolis.” - So Young Magazine
“unable to fade into the background, his magnetic presence, musicality, charisma and vulnerability can end up dominating a gig; therefore this venture into solo recording makes total sense.” - HERO Magazine
" of the hidden architects behind some of your favourite bands.” - Clash Magazine
