Synth-pop songstress Lyon at Avalanche Friday

The beauty of Lyon's infectious brand of synth-pop is rooted in contradiction

After the 2013 release of her debut EP Indian Summer and shows through the fall in her hometown of Toronto, synth-pop songstress Lyon is excited to road-test her songs and share them across Canada.

She performs March 14 at the Avalanche Bar and Grill in Courtenay.

While you wait for Lyon to arrive in your town, check out the latest instalment in her ’80s cover series — her version of Alphaville’s Forever Young — and stay tuned for music videos for the EP tracks Lullaby and Floating.

The beauty of Lyon’s infectious brand of synth-pop is rooted in contradiction. Not in the deliberate sense, but in the serendipitous one.

Described as innocence meets disillusionment and disillusionment meets hope, Indian Summer is electronic music with a human soul by the girl next door who has a secret.

The EP’s title track made CBC Radio 3’s R3-30 Countdown, charting for 8 weeks and hitting No. 3, while the video was on M3’s Daily Top 10 countdown for 10 weeks, hitting No. 1.

Frontwoman, Lauren Malyon (aka Lyon) is a small-town girl who fell in love with the big city. Lauren began playing violin at the age of three, piano at the age of six, began songwriting at the age of 15 and in the summer of 2012, she teamed up with writer/producer/programmer Japeth Maw and created Lyon.
