Consisting of Ryan Johnson, Samuel Greene, Rory Magner and James Kershaw, Manchester’s Lyerr have supported the likes of Cupids and The Lapelles and are now set to release their debut EP ‘In Principio’ on June 16th. Having already been complimented by Clint Boon and Sara Cox, the four piece are yet another Manchester band to keep an eye on.
Belladonna is the first track to be released from the upcoming EP. Kicking off with a big, rock-ish riff, but it’s Ryan Johnson’s vocals which demand attention throughout. It’s fast paced without being over powering, perfectly capable of causing a stir at a live show. The highlight comes at around 2:30 as the intensity builds through the riffs, creating an atmosphere which simply draws you in.
