This is rather lovely.
I first posted about Liverpool's Lydiah on Breaking More Waves back in May after confirming her as one of this year’s artists for Dials Festival 2020. Lydiah was due to open the whole thing in a slot that the previous two years had found alternative rock beasts LibraLibra and under-rated synth pop singer Megan Lara Mae perform; upstairs in The Loft on Albert Road. I’ve always thought that this is an excellent slot at the festival; whereas at many festivals the first band on struggles for an audience, the Dials punters tend to be music hungry connoisseurs – turning up early and listening and watching intently.
Lydiah’s music is a gorgeous blend of alt-folk and soul – although on this new song there’s what sounds like a whole orchestra. Quite how we would have fitted them in the Loft with its relatively small stage and floor space would have been quite a challenge. It might have been a capacity of 1 audience!
I Eden is a song that Lydiah describes as “all about Mother Nature taking back her own.” The work has already been a success with Lydiah winning a £1,000 grant to support her music from winning a competition with the song run by Yorkshire Sculpture Park called the Tune Into Nature Music Prize.
Take a listen and revel in the beauty.
Lydiah - I Eden
