Following the release of their second record Post Era earlier this year, Glasgow’s LYLO have announced a string of UK shows throughout Summer 2018.
After high-profile support slots with the likes of Belle & Sebastian, White Denim, Porches, Molly Nilsson and Syd Arthur, not to mention five head-turning showcase appearances at SxSW Festival in Texas already this year, the quintet will now take their well-honed live show out on the road for a headline tour of their own.
Catch the band at currently scheduled appearances in Nottingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Margate, Manchester and Glasgow between 24th July – 3rd August, with further dates to be added.
They play The Old Hairdressers on Renfield Lane, 3rd August.
Coinciding with the tour, LYLO will also be releasing the latest single from their Post Era album, the smooth sounds of: Yeah Boy – out 27th July 2018 via the El Rancho label.
Combining woozy synths and saxophone, tingling guitars and pulsating bass, LYLO have cemented their status as one of the most favoured and distinctive acts in Glasgow’s DIY scene as well as being championed by BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing Scotland.
In 2015 freshly formed, LYLO recorded, produced and self-released their debut album Handsome Living, a mature debut, delicately conceived of Cocteau Twins and Style Council moments which laid down the foundations of their dream pop sound. The founding three-piece are Justin Allan (Drums), Mitch Flynn (Guitar/Vocal) and Jack Seaton (Bass) who together conceived the debut with Saxophonist Iain McCall in close proximity. Throughout 2016 the band developed their ideas, slowly tapping into a sound more realised with synth being added to the band in the form of Niall Morris.
LYLO’s latest album Post Era was written, recorded, produced and mixed by the band between their flats in Glasgow. Released by the El Rancho label in January of this year, the record showcases their unique and diverse blend of blue eyed soul, jazz, post punk and modern pop influences with plaudits from the likes of The Line of Best Fit who hailed it as a “bizarrely eclectic melting pot of sound” and Loud & Quiet who praised its “instantly enjoyable” charms.
