Hi! I'm Lyla. I write and record music. I've got an album coming out in March, which I'm super excited about.
I love recording, and this album has been really fun to make. I produced it myself so I was, like, the boss. I played lots of the instruments myself too, but also brought in my band, who are amazing. They make sounds that make you go "ah" and "ooh". I was there every step of the way so there weren't any surprises.
When a song starts, it's always an experiment. I guess there are a number of ways it could go. So it's not clear to begin with but it's always totally organic.
Sparklehorse, Dum Dum Girls, Interpol, Courtney Barnett, Nouvelle Vague...
Travelling by Monorail - absolutely horrifying.
Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Patti Smith tied.
I won't stop working on a song until it's built. I know when it's done cause I start to get bored of hearing it playing over and over. Then it's done.
I'll be working on album five. Along the way, I will have done lots of collaborations, and stints performing in different bands.
