Plus Elanor Moss
When LYR – the musical collaboration between poet laureate Simon Armitage and artist/producers Richard Walters and Patrick Pearson – started discussing plans for their second album, it began with what Armitage terms “a very revelatory moment.” Or was it a confession?
Whilst recording their debut, 2020’s Call In The Crash Team, Armitage felt the band had “expected ourselves to be a bit more experimental, a bit more avant-gardist.” The confession freed them up.
The Ultraviolet Age is the powerful second album by LYR. More accessible, more poignant, more widescreen, the album is pitched somewhere between the enigmatic brood of late period Talk Talk, the lo-fi expanse of Low and their British sprechgesang contemporaries including Dry Cleaning, Yard Act and Black Country, New Road. It is an album of deft character sketches, dictatorships, the climate crisis and its centrepiece a gorgeous and moving reflection on the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Melding high quality verse and smart instrumentation to forensically examine the ups and downs of living in today’s Britain.”
Louder Than War
Lincolnshire-based singer-songwriter Elanor Moss began formulating her first body of work while simultaneously living between York and Leeds as an undergraduate in Medieval Literature.
Co-produced by Brooklyn’s Oli Deakin, her 2022 debut, ‘Citrus’ highlights Moss’ knack for intricate, resonant storytelling, dealing with themes of depression, substance abuse, and violence that are offset by lush arrangements and delicate melodies.
