In this edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape, we turn our attention to ‘Mother’ by Lyra.
‘Mother’ is an instantly sonically striking offering from Lyra. Built upon an ambitious pop epicness, the track moves from large-scale highly-stylised passages of percussive power to swirling moments of calm that are lead by Lyra’s hauntingly imposing vocal.
There can be no doubt that ‘Mother’ outlines a giant leap in sound in from Lyra with the anthemic aspirations of the music being more than matched by songwriting, performance and production that combine to create something very special.
