Lyza Jane - New Waves
Fans of Banks, FKA Twigs, Indiana and slow burning menacing pop music brushed with touches of brooding trip hop – here’s another relative newcomer to add to your list. London’s Lyza Jane has come to our attention with a song called Wilderness, a track full of devilish electronic beats, gritty chugging atmospherics and sensuous feminine vocals to completely lose yourself in. According to the notes on Lyza’s Soundcloud the track was produced by former Black Grape member Danny Saber who has worked with the likes of Madonna, Seal, Marilyn Manson and Public Enemy – a fairly high pedigree. Wilderness has a weightiness to it that is as oppressive as it is impressive, and we’ve certainly felt both whilst listening; press play and let this one throb in your ears.
If you’re going to Glastonbury Festival this year Lyza is playing early Thursday afternoon at the relatively small Rabbit Hole stage – the same stage, day and nearly the same time that we saw a relatively baby like Bastille play there in 2011, so that particular stage certainly seems a place to catch the potential stars of tomorrow if the enormo-structures of the Pyramid, Other stage etc don't fully float your boat.
