We love ourselves a little LYRA here at Bitter Sweet Symphonies, so the news of new music from the Irish chanteuse got us very excited.
And LYRA hasn’t let us down. Wavering a little, perhaps, from the ethereal water goddess vibes we fell in love with at the start of her journey – but following in the footsteps of her highly praised song, ‘Falling’ from earlier this year – her latest single ‘Never Let Go‘ still manages to cast a spell.
‘Never Let Go’ is a strong ballad with vulnerable lyrics – it’s a highly emotionally-charged song that just punches you in all of the feels.
LYRA stays true to her entrancing vocals and empowering “sets-you-free” euphony. But despite all this, hiding behind the music, you can still hear the desperation and anguish she felt writing the song while she sings. Speaking briefly of the meaning, LYRA explains: “I f***ed up with a guy I really liked and I just had to get him back.”
All a little more powerful, all a little more pop, perhaps – you can hear the shift within the music. Yet, it’s not a bad development and one we’re intrigued to hear more of.
‘Never Let Go’ is out now via Polydor – available to Stream/Purchase here. Watch the (sultry) music video for it, below.
