An Englishman, an Indian man and an Italian all walked into an art class at college. They messed around with some paint, life drew a few nudes then decided to form a band and make music.
Today they are known as Lyon Tide — an indie alternative pop/rock band from Birmingham (UK). Hailing from the West Midlands, musical prowess and pedigree is something that innately runs through Darren Barnard, Anthony La Pusata and Girish Patel’s veins and over the last few years have been meticulously assembling a lush and layered musical narrative contributing to the post Brit-pop tradition of bands like Snow Patrol, Massive Attack and New Order. Lyon Tide fuses together delicate textures with driving pianos, synths and guitar work, seamlessly transitioning between spare and intimate ballads to soaring, declarative anthems.
