I love music when you can tell it is real. Lycio, which is from Birmingham, UK, is a modern 3-piece band that is blending organic and digital music at a level that is best described as elite. The songwriting, which is lead by clear, raspy vocals, is clean, fresh and raw. It is the definition of beauty. The band describes their music as, “Hybrid music with that essential human feel.” The personal touch is what drives their music and makes it something global.
Their latest single, “Saharan King”, is a masterclass in proving that not every song needs to be masked by layer upon layer of synths to create a genuine track while still utilizing all of the modern tools. Not only that Lycio takes no shortcuts. They play everything completely live with no back tracking or playbacks. That is a rare thing in today’s industry and makes their music all the more special.
“Saharan King” is a beautiful track. It is one of the defining songs that should put the British trio on the map. It is wonderful piano-driven ballad that is filled with heart-wrenching, ethereal vocals that are entrancing and the replay value is unlimited.
If you are looking for something new and provides you with a true sense of artistry, then I suggest that you take a listen to “Saharan King” then go out and get it.
