“We’ve got a deliciously melancholic new track ‘Melatonin’ here from Bantam Lyons – taken from their EP ‘Oh Cordelia!’ which was released this month, along with a performance at this year’s The Great Escape Festival.”
BANTAM LYONS RELEASE NEW UK-ONLY EP ‘OH CORDELIA!’ THROUGH KSHANTU RECORDS
“Bantam Lyons stick out vividly with their ‘80s bedsit goth angst married to ramming-speed drumming, torn-edges guitar, and a voice of Gallic gut-ache beauty”
“Dark, gothic rock ‘n’ roll honed to lazer-sharp accuracy… Clinically cool”
A dazzling blend of engrossing melancholia, driving rhythm and effecting vocals, Bantam Lyons release their excellent new EP ‘Oh Cordélia!’ exclusively in the UK this May through Kshantu Records.
Established and revered in their home country, the Gallic 4-piece have already been turning heads on UK shores with a series of acclaimed performances here, bringing the band attention from the likes of Mojo and Clash Magazine, as well as winning them an invite to perform at this year’s Great Escape Festival in Brighton.
The new UK-only release of ‘Oh Cordélia!’ marks out Bantam Lyons as something to be celebrated, the whole package masterfully crafted and producing something thoroughly stirring, from the infectious and soaring opener ‘When Lips Turn Purple’ through to the heartbreakingly effecting closer ‘Melatonin’.
Bantam Lyons ‘Oh Cordélia!’ EP is out now (released May 14th 2017) through Kshantu Records.
