Release Review

Lyle - Bathing

If you've caught one of Lyle's headline shows, you'll have seen the singer/producer's three piece band whipping up an intense, expressive storm wherein genres blur, with disparate elements of post-club blues and avante garde funk whipped together into a base for a unique voice. 

Best known as the other half of Nabihah Iqbal's (Ninja Tune) collaborative live act, Lyle is stepping out of the shadows in 2018, starting with the emotive whirlwind Bathing, a single that thrusts the listener into a nocturnal blend of sharp tears, percussive synths and rich full-studio sonics. 

With the label-boss' largest headline show on the horizon, supported by his own imprint Morning Routine's dancefloor prodigy Angus and Nabihah Iqbal, and a 6-track ep released around then, Lyle's world is expanding. The only certainty is that it will live up to the promise of another South London pop alchemist's promise; 'I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring.'
