Dan Lyons was previously better known as drummer for South London post-punkers Phobophobes. He has now stepped out on his own as a solo artist, releasing his debut single “Big Moon.”  It has a bit of a a classic 80’s songwriter sound but amps things up with a distinct sound and atmosphere heightened by sharp guitar work, haunting backing vocals and some wonderfully placed violin. There’s a bit of The Cure heard throughout this track and that certainly isn’t a bad thing.


The song is out now via Shaker Records and can be bought over at his Bandcamp, along with b-side “22nd Century Boy”.” Lyons will also be making the trip to SXSW  next week .
