American singer/songwriter Tyler Lyle comes from a musical family, music is like second nature to Lyle, and after many celebratory moments with his debut release, ‘The Golden Age and the Silver Girl’, Lyle is back with his sophomore offering. ‘Winter Is For Kierkegaard’ is the first taster of his new material, a folk pop wonder that rallies the heartstrings into glorious romantic abandon.
Richly textured, stirring acoustica surrounds Lyle’s poetic musings of escapism and self-realisation on ‘Winter Is For Kierkegaard’. It’s a tale of adventure told from a passionate heart which tells us to seize the day.
The stunning, rolling soundscapes of ‘Winter Is For Kierkegaard’ is akin to the sweeping hallowed folk that First Aid Kit have made their namesake. To Lyle’s credit, his songs breathe and rejoice in sweet synchronicity, emotion pours out from every lovingly crafted lyric, his storytelling is intensely visual and his melodies are soulfully rousing.
‘Winter Is For Kierkegaard’ is taken from Tyler’s forthcoming album ‘The Native Genius of Desert Plants’, due out on June 2nd.
